Nelson Cruz leaves with tight hamstring

NEW YORK -- Nelson Cruz is having trouble with his hamstring again.

Cruz, who had three stints on the disable list this season due to hamstring problems, left the game in the fifth inning. He's day-to-day with a tight hamstring, the Rangers announced.

David Murphy replaced Cruz in left field.

It's the left hamstring that is bothering Cruz this time. He strained that twice this season, the last time leading to a 15-day DL stint in August.
