It hasn’t been a good day for the Seattle Mariners, both on the scoreboard and in the training room. Jack Wilson left Wednesday’s game against the Texas Rangers first, going down hard after falling victim to a takeout slide early in the game while accounting for three runs on back-to-back throwing errors in the process. It got ever worse in the bottom of the eighth as Adam Moore was forced to leave the game with an injury, as well.
While there have been no updates, it appears both Wilson and Moore suffered leg or ankle injuries. Wilson was replaced by Luis Rodriguez at second base, and Rodriguez came through almost immediately, doubling to lead-off the top of the fifth and coming around to score on a Michael Saunders double.
Moore was injured going after a ball in the dirt and was unable to put any weight. He was helped off the field and taken to the clubhouse, with Miguel Olivo immediately replacing Moore behind the dish.
With Olivo the only available catcher on the roster, it’s likely the Mariners will be forced to bring Josh Bard up from the Tacoma to assume the backup role in Seattle.
In the eighth inning, the Mariners trail the Texas Rangers, 7-3.
