Pirates' Walker leaves game with pain in side
CHICAGO -- Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Neil Walker left Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs because of discomfort on his right side and is day to day.
Walker batted in the first and third innings before Brandon Inge replaced him at second in the bottom of the fifth.
"He's got right side soreness and discomfort," manager Clint Hurdle said. "I think it happened on a swing, his last at-bat. Day to day, just like all of us."
