Angels LF Vernon Wells leaves game because of groin injury

May 9, 2011 |  8:14 pm

Lkyp8onc Angels left fielder Vernon Wells was pulled from Monday night's game against the Chicago White Sox in the bottom of the fourth inning because of a right groin strain.

With a runner on third base and two outs and the Angels trailing, 3-0, Wells hit a ground ball to third base. But he only made it a few feet out of the batter's box before stopping and clutching his right leg.

Wells entered the game with a .179 average, but he appeared to be warming at the plate, with three home runs over the past week.
