Kim exits after first with right hamstring strain

BALTIMORE-- Hyun Soo Kim left Sunday's finale vs. the Angels with a right hamstring strain. He grounded out in the first inning and was replaced in left field by Joey Rickard.

Kim batted in the bottom of the first inning and lunged at a Tim Lincecum pitch, grounding out to second. That moved Adam Jones to second and he was later stranded at third.

Rickard stepped in defensively for Kim, who was hitting second in the O's lineup behind Jones, at the start of the second inning.
