Ramirez is listed as day-to-day.

Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez left Tuesday night's game with a right ring finger contusion, though X-rays were negative. Ramirez is listed as day-to-day.

"We'll find out tomorrow how sore it is. The fact that he didn't break it is good news," manager Don Mattingly said after the game. "Whether it's one day, two days, I don't know. We'll see tomorrow."

In the top of the seventh inning Corey Dickerson lined a ball off the tip of Ramirez's right ring finger and into left field for an RBI double that briefly cut the Dodgers' lead to 3-2. After conferring with trainer Stan Conte, Ramirez left the game in favor of Carlos Triunfel at shortstop.

Earlier in the game Conte was examining the shoulder of Ramirez, the irritation of the A-C joint in his right shoulder still something the shortstop is dealing with, more in the field than at the plate.

Ramirez homered in the third inning to open the scoring, and on the homestand has is 6-for-19 with three extra-base hits, hitting .316/.381/.579 in five games.
