Swisher leaves game with tight hamstring

CBSSports.com wire reports

NEW YORK -- Nick Swisher has left the New York Yankees game against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday after walking in the third inning because of a tight left hamstring and will have a precautionary MRI.

Swisher struck out in the first inning Sunday and caught Austin Jackson's line drive hit directly at him in right field to end the top of the third.

Max Scherzer then walked him with one out in the bottom half. After seeing two pitches to the next batter, Raul Ibanez, and a throw over to first base, Swisher came out of the game. Andruw Jones pinch ran.

Entering Sunday's game, Swisher was second in the AL with 23 RBIs. He had a league-leading 15 extra-base hits.
