Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez left in the sixth inning of New Yorks 7-1 win against Baltimore on Sunday with a strained right quadriceps. He is listed as day-to-day. Rodriguez slowed down while running to first after hitting into a fielders choice that left him on base. While at first, he repeatedly stretched the quadriceps area of his right leg. A few pitches into Hideki Matsuis at-bat, Yankees manager Joe Girardi and a team trainer emerged from the dugout for an examination. Rodriguez left the game, but didnt limp on his way to the dugout. Morgan Ensberg came in as a pinch-runner and remained in the game to play at third. The Yanks say A-Rods status is day to day. New York has a scheduled off day on Monday, giving Rodriguez an extra day of rest. In 19 games prior to Sundays contest, Rodriguez is batting .307 with four home runs and nine RBI. In the game, he was 1-for-3 with an RBI double.
