Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Carp exited yesterday’s loss to the Baltimore Orioles with right hamstring tightness. After the game, manager John Farrell told reporters – including Todd Karpovich of MLB.com – that he considers Carp day to day and hopes to have him available on Tuesday following the team’s off-day. "He felt cramping go up first base, but I don't think it's a pull," manager John Farrell said. "Strength testing in the training appeared to be not far off from normal. Hopefully with the day off [Monday], he'll be available on Tuesday. Again, it wasn't a pull. It was more of a cramping situation, probably because of the humidity and the heat over the past couple of days." The injury occurred in the seventh inning after Carp hit a double. He had started the last few games at first base for the Red Sox in Mike Napoli’s absence. The Red sox replaced Carp in the lineup with Shane Victorino, while Daniel Nava moved from right field to cover first base. For his part, Carp isn’t overly concerned about the injury, as he’s hoping it can simply be chalked up to cramping. "Hopefully, it's just a cramp," Carp said. "It's been pretty humid the last couple of days. I don't feel too concerned about it. I have the rest of the night off and tomorrow. Almost two full days until we play again, so I'm pretty confident I'll be back out there Tuesday." Despite limited playing time, Carp has been one of Boston’s most productive players. The 26-year-old is second on the team with eight home runs, as he’s hit .320/.372/.680 over 113 plate appearances this season. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Bailey's 'Creamed' In 9th; Red Sox Still Win, 5-4

Mitchell Layton/Getty ImagesAll the Red Sox have to do for the rest of the season is go into the ninth with a 3-run lead or better. With that bulge, it should be a piece of cake for Andrew Bailey to close it out. Today, given a 5-2 lead, Bailey gave up a two-run HR to Matt Wieters and was one bonehead running play away from maybe allowing the O's to tie the game. The Sox ended...
