KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Seattle catcher Kenji Johjima left the game against Kansas City in the second inning Tuesday night after being hit in the wrist by a pitch while behind the plate.
The pitch from Ryan Feierabend glanced off batter Mark Teahen, and apparently struck Johjima in the right wrist. He was replaced by Jamie Burke with the Royals leading 6-0. The Mariners were struck by a freak injury the night before when Richie Sexson left the game after bruising his thumb on a play at first.
