Bobby Madritsch Hurt 

I do not know the extent of the injury yet. Bobby threw a 55-foot breaking ball and then hopped off the mound, obviously in pain.

Later in the game, the Twins announcers said it was a strained shoulder. You will hear a lot about how Bobby Madritsch pitched some extremely abusive pitch counts last year. I'm just hoping I don't hear the word "labrum" over the next two days.

The Mariners drop a second game to the Twins, 4-1. The difference between this game and yesterday, is that when we get the bases loaded with one out, Dan Wilson Valdez comes to the plate and hits into a 5-3 doubleplay. On the first pitch, no less. I about kicked a ball through the television.

Now I get to spend the night hoping that Bobby M is okay. M's get a day off and then play the Rangers on Friday in what should be a good series. Look for the M's to bounce back after running into a buzz saw of good pitching and bad breaks the last two days.
