Kazmir leaves game with injury



Ace lefthander Scott Kazmir was pitching really well for the Rays as they led 2-1 into the sixth inning, but things got bad in a hurry when he started shaking his left arm, drawing the attention of the coaches and trainers. After talking to Kazmir and watching him throw one warmup pitch, the Rays decided that there was enough concern to take him out. The official reason was announced later as ""muscle cramps in his left thumb and wrist,'' and both Kazmir and manger Joe Maddon said he was fine, and that the cramp was probably the result of dehydration from cold-fighting medicine he had been taking.
