Orioles' Pearce exits with abdominal strain

Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Baltimore Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce left Friday's night's game against Minnesota with a right abdominal strain.

Pearce made the last play in the top of the third inning, fielding a grounder and tossing to pitcher Miguel Gonzalez for the final out. But he was replaced in the field to start the fourth.

Pearce is batting .289 this season with a career-high 16 home runs.
