Uribe day to day with tight right hamstring

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe left Friday night's 6-3 loss to the Brewers after six innings with tightness in his right hamstring. Manager Don Mattingly said the move was precautionary. Uribe is day to day.

"His hammy tightened up on him. The same one as before, so we tried to get him out of there," Mattingly said, referring to the injury that caused Uribe to miss 34 games earlier in the year.

"I guess we'll know more tomorrow," Mattingly said when asked if he's concerned. "A little bit, just because it's the same leg. They're a little finicky, it seems like."

Justin Turner took over for Uribe at third base to start the seventh inning.

Uribe was 1-for-3 on the night at the plate and is hitting .293 on the season.
