A’s right fielder Josh Reddick left Saturday’s game against Miami with a strained right knee, re-injuring the same knee that recently sent him to the disabled list.

There was no immediate word on how Reddick suffered this latest injury, or whether it’s directly related to his previous one. He was playing in just his fourth game since being activated from the D.L. for hyperextending his right knee.

Stephen Vogt replaced Reddick in right field for the bottom of the third.

The A’s and Marlins were tied 5-5 in the sixth in a game where the A’s let a four-run lead slip away for the second day in a row. They scored four times in the first, but right-hander Sonny Gray gave up three runs in the second and two in the fourth. Oakland then tied the game in the fifth.
