Diamondbacks LHP Robbie Ray leaves start with oblique injury

WASHINGTON (AP) Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed pitcher Robbie Ray left Sunday’s game against the Washington Nationals in the bottom of the second with a strained right oblique muscle.

Ray waved to the dugout after throwing a ball to Washington catcher Matt Wieters with one out. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo and an athletic trainer came to the mound, and Ray soon departed. He was replaced by T.J. McFarland, who surrendered a home run to Wieters to give the Nationals a 1-0 lead.

Ray allowed one hit and struck out two in 1 1/3 innings.

Ray, an All-Star last season, entered Sunday with a 2-0 record and a 5.13 ERA. He has won eight consecutive decisions dating back to last season.
