DETROIT (AP) -Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Jason Grilli left Saturday's game against the Cleveland Indians after being hit on the left knee by a line drive by Ryan Garko in the eighth inning.
After hitting Grilli's knee, the ball caromed into the outfield between first and second and Garko slid safely into second with a double.
Grilli, who was replaced by Tim Byrdak, fell to the ground, but got up and was able to walk off the field.
He started the inning and gave up a leadoff single by Jhonny Peralta and Dave Delucci's two-run homer, which broke a 3-3 tie, before facing Garko, who scored on a sacrifice fly by Travis Hafner.
