SEATTLE (AP) Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz left in the seventh inning of Monday night's game against the Kansas City Royals after he popped his pelvic bone out of place.

Seattle initially announced Cruz exited with a tight right hamstring before clarifying his injury after the game.

''They got it popped back in and he is OK now. We'll see how he feels tomorrow,'' manager Lloyd McClendon said.

Dustin Ackley pinch-hit for Cruz in the seventh after the first-year Mariners slugger fielded his position in the top of the inning. The Mariners trailed 4-1 at the time Cruz left, and Ackley struck out with a runner on third.

Cruz entered Monday hitting .315 with 19 home runs and 44 RBIs.
