Mark Loretta also leaves game with injury, Manny goes 0 for 3

Loretta has the exact, same injury as Billingsley, slight right-groin tightness. He was removed in the middle of the bottom of the fifth inning. … Manny went 0 for 3. Was called out on strikes in the first inning and again in the fifth. In between, he GIDP’d. He says he’ll lobby Torre to play tomorrow night as the DH. It’s a home game, but it’s against an A.L. club (Seattle), so I’m sure Don Wakamatsu, the Mariners’ new skipper, won’t object. Tough to imagine a rookie A.L. manager saying to Joe Torre, “No, you’re an National League team, it’s in your park, so we MUST play by National League rules.”

    Better to have those groins tighten up now than during the season.
    I’ve always been against the DH until recently.

    Was he changing clothes in Billingsley’s car as well?
