ATLANTA (AP) -- Braves outfielder Justin Upton has left the game against the Marlins because of cramping in his left hamstring.

Upton flexed his left leg after running to first base Sunday on an unsuccessful sacrifice bunt attempt in the fifth inning. Marlins catcher Koyie Hill threw out Mike Minor at third base as Upton reached on the fielder's choice.

Upton was removed from the game. His older brother, B.J. Upton, entered the game as a pinch-runner. Freddie Freeman followed with a three-run homer off Henderson Alvarez that gave Atlanta a 4-3 lead.

There were no immediate details provided on the severity of the injury.
