Atlanta, GA ( - Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu exited Wednesday's game against the Braves with a leg injury.

Ryu missed time earlier this season with inflammation in his left shoulder, but on Wednesday sustained a right gluteus muscle strain.

After issuing a walk to B.J. Upton with two outs in the sixth, Ryu grabbed the back of his thigh and motioned towards the dugout. After a quick visit from the team trainer, Jamey Wright was called in from the bullpen to take over.

Ryu had given up three runs on six hits and two walks before exiting with the Dodgers trailing, 3-2, which wound up being the final score.
