Orioles' Mora leaves game with hamstring injury
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Baltimore Orioles third baseman Melvin Mora left the game against Tampa Bay because of a strained left hamstring Friday night.

Mora was hurt while trying to beat out a grounder with two on and two out in the third. The Orioles said Mora is day to day.

Mora, who went 0-for-2 against Rays left-hander Scott Kazmir, is hitting .393 with 12 homers and 49 RBIs since the All-Star break.

Also, Orioles catcher Ramon Hernandez was ejected by plate umpire Sam Holbrook in the fourth inning.

After Tampa Bay had scored seven times in the fourth for a 10-0 lead, Hernandez appeared to argue with Holbrook after a check-swing on a pitch to Tampa Bay's Akinori Iwamura was called a ball.
