Enjoying the Phils/Yanks opening spring training game.
Roy Oswalt hit by liner, leaves game
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt has been hit behind the right ear by a line drive off the bat of Manny Ramirez and has been taken for X-rays.
The Phillies say Oswalt had a neck bruise but did not lose consciousness. The team says he was not dizzy before leaving Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Oswalt fell to the ground and remained there until a trainer reached the mound to examine him. The right-hander stood up and after a brief discussion walked to the visiting clubhouse on his own.
Evan Longoria homered leading off the fourth against Oswalt. Ramirez, who had a RBI double in the first, was the next batter.
Oswalt, making his fourth spring training appearance, struck out four while allowing three runs and four hits.
