NEW YORK – Mets second baseman Robinson Cano left Wednesday night’s game against Washington because of tightness in his left quadriceps.

Cano appeared to hurt the leg while running to first base when he grounded out in the third following J.D. Davis’ two-out double.

The 36-year-old Cano is batting .241 with three homers and 13 RBIs. The eight-time All-Star, was acquired by New York from Seattle in December.

Twice last weekend Cano failed to run out grounders in Miami, both of them resulting in double plays.
