Rockies righty Hale leaves with groin injury
Hale, who was scheduled to start Friday night, instead entered in the top of the second inning in place of starter Kyle Kendrick after a rain delay of 2 hours, 6 minutes. Kendrick did not return after pitching the first inning.
Hale pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings before being forced from the game with the groin injury. He was relieved by Christian Friedrich.
The Rockies did not immediately announce a new starter for Friday's game.
