Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Bad news for the tonight as starting pitcher Ross Ohlendorf left tonight’s game with an injury.

Ohlendorf left the mound in the top of the 3rd inning. He word on what the injury was but speculation is that it could be his shoulder.

Ohlendorf’s line in the 3rd inning was: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER. He allowed a 2-out, 3 run HR in the 1st inning to Rockies 1B Jason Giambi.

Manager Clint Hurdle brought in RHP Jeff Karsten’s to replace Ohlendorf.
