Bogusevic exits game with left hamstring injury

OAKLAND -- Cubs outfielder Brian Bogusevic was pulled from Thursday's game because of tightness in his left hamstring, and he was listed as day to day. He said he tweaked his hamstring Wednesday chasing a fly ball in the ninth, and it tightened up on him.

Bogusevic started in center on Thursday, and played two innings in the field, making one catch in the first. He had one at-bat in the second and struck out swinging.

The Cubs already are short as far as outfielders go. David DeJesus was placed on the disabled list June 14 with a sprained right shoulder, and Ryan Sweeney fractured his left ribs on Saturday in Seattle crashing into the outfield wall.

Julio Borbon took over in center field for Bogusevic.
