BALTIMORE (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Jerome Williams left Tuesday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles in the first inning with a strained left hamstring.

After his second wild pitch with David Lough at the plate, Williams raced to cover home plate as catcher Carlos Ruiz chased down the ball near Philadelphia’s dugout.
