BALTIMORE — Red Sox first baseman Mike Carp left Sunday’s game at Camden Yards with right hamstring tightness.

Carp was replaced by pinch-runner Shane Victorino with one out in the seventh inning after jogging into third base. Shortly after arriving at the base, Red Sox manager John Farrell and trainer Rick Jameyson jogged onto the field to check on the first baseman. Carp was promptly removed, with Victorino eventually scoring on Will Middlebrooks’ three-run home run, cutting the Orioles lead to 5-3 at the time.

Carp, who had gone 1-for-2 in the series finale, entered Sunday having gone 6-for-18 with a pair of home runs on the current road trip. For the season, he had been hitting .320 with eight home runs and an 1.051 OPS in 41 games.

Daniel Nava came in to play first base, with Victorino moving to right field.
