• Omar Infante was struck by a ball during batting practice while fielding grounders on the side at second base from Leyland. Infante was down for a few minutes before walking off under his own power and heading into the clubhouse with head athletic trainer Kevin Rand. Although Infante didn't return to batting practice, he went 2-for-4 with a double and RBI in Monday's 4-2 win without showing any signs of pain.
"That was my fault," Leyland said. "I time it so that when the hitter hits the ball, then I hit the ground ball. [Bullpen catcher Scott] Pickens threw me one and I kind of hesitated. I hit a little bit late and he was on his way to fielding the ground ball and he got hit by a line drive. So you can blame that one on the skipper."
