ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Oakland Athletics catcher Derek Norris left Wednesday night's game at Texas after getting hit behind the plate with a foul tip.

Adrian Beltre was batting in the sixth inning when he fouled off a pitch.

It wasn't immediately clear where the ball hit Norris, who went down to his knees and stayed in that position for several minutes. He was eventually helped up by a team trainer and assisted while walking back to the dugout.

John Jaso, who was getting a night off, took over behind the plate.
