LOS ANGELES (AP) — San Diego Padres starter Blake Snell left a game with a left adductor strain in the first inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Snell retired his first two batters on popups to left field.

He was facing Trea Turner when he suddenly left the mound with a 2-1 count, having thrown 11 pitches.

The left-hander limped slightly as he walked off with the groin injury.

The 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner is 7-6 with a 4.22 ERA. He set a franchise record with 13 consecutive hitless innings across his last two starts.
