Dodgers OF Gutierrez leaves with left hamstring injury

CHICAGO (AP) Franklin Gutierrez has left the Los Angeles Dodgers' game against the Chicago Cubs with a left hamstring injury.

Gutierrez was throwing out trying to steal second in the second on a damp, cold Monday night at Wrigley Field. He was replaced by Scott Van Slyke in the field before the bottom half of the inning.

The 34-year-old Gutierrez signed a $2.6 million, one-year contract with Los Angeles in the offseason. He went 3 for 13 in his first five games with the team.
