Infante leaves game with right hamstring cramp

CINCINNATI -- Another Marlins starter could be on his way to the injured list.

Second baseman Omar Infante left tonight's game against the Reds in the fifth inning with what is being a right hamstring cramp. Infante, who drove in the only run of the game thus far (the Marlins lead 1-0) on a first inning single, reached for the back of his leg after fouling off a pitch in his third at-bat.

Manager Edwin Rodriguez and assistant trainer Mike Kozak came out to check on Infante, but he remained in the game. Two pitches later, he grounded out to the third base and gingerly jogged toward first.

Emilio Bonifacio, who started in left field, replaced Infante at second base. Scott Cousins entered the game and went out to left.

The Marlins are already short left fielder Logan Morrison, who is on the disabled list with a strained right arch. Center fielder Chris Coghlan (strained right shoulder) started Saturday after missing his first start of the season Friday, but is questionable for Sunday.
