Albert Pujols leaves game with left hamstring cramp

Tuesday September 16th, 2014

Los Angeles Angels' first-baseman Albert Pujols left Monday night's game against the Seattle Mariners with an apparent hamstring injury, the Los Angeles Times' Mike DiGiovanna tweeted

Pujols was later diagnosed with a left hamstring cramp, which could keep him out for multiple games, according to DiGiovanna. 

After hitting a three-run double, Pujols pulled up lame heading into second base, grabbing his left hamstring. He left the game shortly thereafter.

The Angels boasted baseball's best record heading into play Monday night at 93-56. The team has a 10-game lead over the Oakland A's in the American League West. 

Pujols is one of the Angels' leading hitters, batting .273 this season with 26 home runs and 94 RBI.
