Torii Hunter leaves game after being hit on left hand

Tigers right fielder Torii Hunter left Tuesday's game after being hit on the left hand by New York reliever Dellin Betances in the top of the ninth inning.

Hunter was checked out on the field by head trainer Kevin Rand, and left immediately thereafter, looking like he was in a lot of pain.

[UPDATE: The Tigers announced that X-rays on Hunter's hand were negative; it's being listed as a contusion. He will be reevaluated on Wednesday.]

The Tigers already lost starting shortstop Eugenio Suarez to a knee injury in the series.
