ST. PETERSBURG -- In his fourth game back from a right hamstring strain, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis experienced tightness in the same hamstring and was taken out of Thursday's game against the Rays in the fourth inning.
Kipnis hit a ground-rule double in the top of the fourth, lashing one down the left-field line that bounced over the short wall in the corner. He later moved up one base on a fielder's choice. He did not join the team on defense in the bottom half of the inning, with Jose Ramirez sliding over to Kipnis' position at second and Giovanny Urshela taking over at third.
