Villar pulled, Grossman injured

Eventful game, yes? Between Brandon Barnes' three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the 9th and Lucas Harrell's three scoreless innings...there were many more not-so-good things.

Chief among them Bob Grossman's apparent oblique injury. Grossman:
I pulled my oblique four years ago. It's a different one...I'm just going to go day to day to see how I am.

Villar getting pulled for trying to turn an easy single into an impossible double. Bo Porter:
I explained this to Jonathan after the game...What's going on? What's the score? You have a starting pitcher who has basically labored there for three innings. We are down 4-1. We get the leadoff man on. That is not the time to take that chance.
