Brewers’ Sheets leaves early

March 10, 2006


— Ben Sheets came out of Milwaukee's game against Oakland due to irritation in a back muscle, the same area which caused him to miss the final month of last season.

"He didn't pull anything," Brewers manager Ned Yost said after a 7-3 loss to the Athletics. "It just felt strange to him. It was not a knifelike pain, just a dull ache. He has some scar tissue back there, and it could be he popped some of that, which would be a good thing."

At Port St. Lucie, Fla., New York Mets left fielder Cliff Floyd is awaiting results of kidney tests after abnormalities were found in his urine. Floyd has a family history of kidney problems, which triggered concern among Mets doctors.

At Vero Beach, Fla., before a crowd liberally sprinkled with Boston Red Sox fans, manager Grady Little called the shots from the dugout, Derek Lowe pitched four scoreless innings, and Nomar Garciaparra contributed to a 6-4 victory - by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
