MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Twins starter Kevin Slowey had to leave the game against the White Sox during a six-run fourth inning after he was hit on the right wrist by Juan Uribe's line drive.
Preliminary X-rays showed no broken bones, and the Twins said Slowey had a bruised wrist.
The right-hander retired the first 13 batters he faced before Orlando Cabrera homered to start the White Sox's rally. After a couple of mistakes in the field by his teammates, Slowey hit A.J. Pierzynski with an 0-and-2 pitch that loaded the bases.
Then came Uribe's smash, which bounced off Slowey and rolled in front of the mound. Slowey was able to recover and pick up the ball, but his wild throw allowed two more runs to score.
