Manny Ramirez leaves early with calf injury

Manny hit a single in the sixth, trotted down the first base line, but pulled up lame just before hitting the bag.  He missed a handful of games last week with a similar calf issue and is likely going to be deemed “day-to-day” once Dodgers trainers get their hands on him.  He was replaced in left field by Reed Johnson, who may be asked to start the next couple of games as the dreadlocked outfielder rests.

Ramirez, 37, is off to a torrid start, batting .415/.500/.659 with two homers and 12 RBI through 41 at-bats.  He should avoid the disabled list, but you never know.

    My son and I were huge Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz fans. We lost all respect for them after their respective positive drug tests.
    What a shame.
