Cairo exits after straining left hamstring
WASHINGTON -- Reds utility infielder Miguel Cairo exited Saturday's game vs. the Nationals in the second inning because of a strained left hamstring. Cairo's return status is considered day to day by the club.

Cairo started at third base in place of a resting Scott Rolen, and notched his first hit of the season with a one-out double to left field in the top of the second. Two batters later, Drew Stubbs drove him in with an RBI single to left field. Cairo scored with a slide into the plate, but reached for the hamstring on his way back to the dugout.

"When I slid into the plate, I felt a big cramp," Cairo said. "We'll see how it feels tomorrow. It feels tight. Hopefully it's nothing bad."

Wilson Valdez replaced Cairo to begin the bottom of the second inning.
