A’s Khris Davis leaves game early in Cleveland with hip injury

CLEVELAND — Khris Davis, bothered by his sore left hip, batted once before being pinch-hit for in the third inning Tuesday by Mark Canha, who promptly slugged a two-run home run for a 3-1 A’s lead over the Indians.
The A’s announced he was taken out because of “lingering effects of the left hip contusion.”
Davis, batting fourth as the designated hitter, grounded out to shortstop leading off the second inning against Cleveland right-hander Trevor Bauer.
Davis had sat out Monday’s 6-4 A’s win over Cleveland, to rest the hip.
“I feel pretty good,” he said before Tuesday’s game.
“Each and every game, we get a better feel once the game starts,” manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday before the game. “The full reason for (Davis’ day off) was, hopefully, he’s that much better today.”
Davis missed some time after injuring the hip on May 5 in Pittsburgh. Before Monday, however, he had been the A’s designated hitter in six of the past seven games, sitting out only Saturday’s 4-1 win at Detroit.
In the six games, Davis hit .375 (9 for 24) with two home runs, both in the 6-5 loss at Seattle last Monday.
Canha’s homer was his sixth, and third pinch-hit home run of his career.
