No reason to belabor a nondescript game like that. But this is worth passing along:
Nick Blackburn returned to the Metrodome after getting checked out and met with Bobby Abreu after the game. Abreu was relieved to see the Minnesota pitcher was OK after being hit with that line drive.
“I was scared,” Abreu said. “You never want to see something like that.”
Blackburn, remarkably, came away with a fat lip and bruised nose. He broke no bones and has all his teeth.
