Switzer out of game

Jon Switzer came on the start the fourth inning and immediately absorbed a liner back up the middle by Andy Marte. No one up here seems sure where the ball hit Switzer, but he left the game after a brief consultation with trainer Ron Porterfield.
Steve Andrade was summoned from the bullpen and gave up two runs. He was lucky to get off that easy, as Luis Rivas lined one up the middle with men on first and third that Andrade was able to snare, doubling the runner off first to end the inning.
It’s 4-2 Indians in the middle of the fourth.
