Hamilton leaves game after being hit in hand by pitch
Hamilton was hit in the first inning by a pitch from Wandy Rodriguez and initially didn't appear to be injured. He took his base and returned to play defense in the bottom half before he was replaced by Brandon Boggs in the second.
X-rays were negative and he is day to day.
Hamilton, who leads the majors in RBIs, was back in the lineup after leaving Tuesday's game early and missing Wednesday's game with inflammation in his left knee.
