Sabathia injured as Indians top Jays

Sabathia injured as Indians top Jays

at Winter Haven, Fla.
Wednesday, March 28

Indians at the plate: Jason Michaels, batting in the two hole, had a strong day at the plate. He hit a solo homer in his first at-bat and doubled in his second. Travis Hafner knocked Michaels in after that double with an RBI single to right.

Jays at the plate: Reed Johnson singled and scored in the first inning on Alex Rios' groundout to short. Gregg Zaun had an RBI single in the first.

Indians on the mound: Left-hander C.C. Sabathia's start lasted all of two pitches. He was nailed in the left forearm by a line drive off the bat of Johnson and immediately came out of the game. He went to Winter Haven Hospital for X-rays. Former Blue Jays prospect Tom Mastny, named to the Tribe's Opening Day bullpen earlier in the day, relieved Sabathia and worked 2 2/3 innings, giving up a run on two hits. Left-hander Aaron Fultz worked 1 1/3 scoreless innings.

Jays on the mound: Left-hander Gustavo Chacin went five innings, giving up a pair of runs on seven hits with a walk and four strikeouts. Right-hander Jeremy Accardo worked two scoreless innings in which all he allowed was a hit and a walk.

Grapefruit League records: Indians 15-12-1; Jays 10-13-4.

Up next: The Indians will head out to Disney World to face the Braves at 1:05 p.m. ET on Thursday. Right-hander Jake Westbrook will get the start. The Jays will be at home in Dunedin against the Yankees. Relievers Shaun Marcum, Jason Frasor, Casey Janssen and Brian Tallet will all pitch in the 7:05 p.m. game.
