McClendon Ejected, Mariners Shut Out by Rays
Jake Odorizzi pitched one-hit ball for six innings, but the Tampa Bay Rays lost All-Star Ben Zobrist in a 2-0 win over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.
Zobrist dislocated his left thumb on a headfirst slide while trying to steal second base in the fifth. The valuable all-purpose player jammed himself into the bag after being tagged out, walked off the field holding his hand and later had his thumb adjusted back into place.
Zobrist will remain with the team for the final four games of a West Coast road trip and be re-evaluated when the Rays return home.
Odorizzi (2-3) picked up his first win since the opening week of the season, teaming with three relievers on a combined two-hitter.
Brandon Maurer (1-2) and the Seattle bullpen held the Rays to three hits.
