New York Mets starter Sean Green lasted just four hitters before calling out the trainer to discuss what apparently was a problem with his pitching hand. He confered with the trainer and manager Jerry Manuel before being sent to the clubhouse.
Orioles starter Brad Hennessey also left after trainer Richie Bancells was summoned to the mound to talk to him, but he was probably at his pitch count after give up a single and two walks to load the bases in the second inning. He walked three and gave up two hits, getting out of trouble in the first with a double-play ball.
Green wasn't pitching particularly poorly, but gave up a run on an infield hit by Ryan Freel and a two-out single by Ty Wigginton. Nice debut by the new utility guys. Freel stole second to get in position to score.
