Gorzelanny's first pitch to David Wright was well outside. Manager John Russell and a trainer quickly came out of the dugout and appeared to be examining his back.
After several warmup pitches, Gorzelanny stayed in and got Wright to ground out to end the inning, which made him eligible for a win. The Pirates were leading 8-0 at the time.
Gorzelanny walked slowly off the field, and television cameras showed him wincing in the dugout. He allowed just one hit in five scoreless innings, walking five and striking out four.
