Rays’ Kiermaier leaves after hit on hand by pitch

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier exited in the sixth inning of Game 2 of the AL Championship Series against Houston after being hit by a pitch and sustaining a left hand contusion.

The team announced that X-rays were negative and he’s day to day.

Kiermaier was hit by the Astros’ Enoli Paredes in the top of the sixth Tuesday night and stayed in the game, later scoring on a Hunter Renfroe double.

But in the bottom of the sixth, he was replaced in the lineup. Manuel Margot moved to center field, with Renfroe shifting to right.

Kiermaier went 0-for-2 with a run and a strikeout.
