Manny exits game early with tight calf

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers left fielder Manny Ramirez left Friday night's game in the fourth inning with tightness in his right calf.

Ramirez, 37, had grounded out in both of his at-bats and had no plays in the outfield. He was replaced by Reed Johnson.

Ramirez came into the game batting .379 with one homer and eight RBIs, having played in eight of the Dodgers' nine games. He was scheduled to get Saturday, a day game after a night game, off.
