The Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday by the score of 6-4. The loss dropped the Phillies to 66-77, last in the National League East. The Phillies managed just five hits off four Pirates pitchers. Shortstop Jimmy Rollins left the game after the fourth inning due to a strained hamstring. 

As reported by Erik Bacharach of, Rollins left the game after he suffered a left hamstring strain running out a tripe with one out in the fourth inning. He was grabbing his hamstring at third base before scoring on an RBI single by Ryan Howard.

Freddy Galvis, who is batting just .085 in 59 at-bats this season, replaced Rollins in the fifth inning. The veteran shortstop later told Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly that he expects to miss around 10 days with the problem, but was confident he'd be able to play again in 2014.

Rollins, in his 15th Major League season, is batting .243 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI this season. The Phillies all time hits leader, MVP, three-time All Star and four-time Gold Glove Award winner has a career average of .267 with 216 home runs, 887 RBI and 453 stolen bases.
