Sensitive time for 66ers pitcher James Adkins

When 66ers pitcher James Adkins was hit by a line drive from Lake Elsinore’s Eric Sogard in Tuesday’s loss to the Storm, it looked painful.

It was hard to tell exactly where it hit Adkins, but you could call it the lower abdomen or the upper groin. Whatever you call it, it’s a very sensitive spot for a man. Although the left the game at that point, Adkins said after the game he would not miss a start.

After the game, the Sixers were hit with one of their surprise drug tests. So they couldn’t get on the bus until every player peed in a cup. Adkins was one of the first players to get on the bus, so at least the accident didn’t affect his ability to fulfill his drug test responsibility.
