Rangers P Chris Martin hurt his hamstring charging in from bullpen during brawl

Dodgers Rangers fight

Texas Rangers reliever Chris Martin paid the price for his show of team unity on Wednesday night.

The Rangers and the Los Angeles Dodgers had a fight during their series finale when Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp collided with Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos on a play at the plate in the third inning. Take a look:

After the game, an eventual 3-2 victory for the Dodgers, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reported that Martin hurt his hamstring charging in from the bullpen when both benches emptied.

The 32-year-old Martin, who holds a 3.92 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 23 appearances this season, has developed into a fairly steady late-inning option for the Rangers. On the bright side, at least his injury doesn’t sound nearly as bad as the one that Joaquin Benoit suffered under similar circumstances.
