Mark Teixeira Leaves ALCS Game 4 With Apparent Hamstring Injury

New York Yankees’ first baseman Mark Teixeira left Game 4 of the ALCS in the fifth inning with an apparent hamstring injury.

Teixeira was injured while trying to beat a relay to first base after hitting a groundball to Texas third baseman Michael Young. Teixeira flopped safely into first base to avoid a double play, and was replaced by Marcus Thames.
