OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon has left his start against the San Diego Padres with an apparent injury.

Colon pitched two hitless innings Sunday before allowing a leadoff single to Everth Cabrera in the third. Alexi Amarista followed with a sacrifice bunt that Colon fielded cleanly, but the pitcher threw wildly to first base, allowing Amarista to reach second while Cabrera raced to third.

As Colon walked back to the mound, A's manager Bob Melvin and a team trainer came out to meet him. Following a brief discussion, Colon was removed from the game and replaced by Pedro Figueroa.
