ATLANTA -- Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Chad Billingsley's status for his next start is uncertain after he left Sunday night's game against the Atlanta Braves with a cramp in his right hamstring.

There was no immediate word from the team on the severity of the injury.

Billingsley gave up only two hits and no runs with one walk and nine strikeouts in five innings.

Billingsley's left knee appeared to buckle as he followed through on a pitch in the fifth inning, but following a visit from a trainer he completed the inning. He was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the sixth.
