Mike Adams was ill, not injured

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It's always alarming to see athletic trainer Jamie Reed and manager Ron Washington rush out to the mound to check on a pitcher after a strikeout.

In Mike Adams' case, it wasn't anything serious.

"I've been sick and couldn't catch by breath," Adams said. "I just got a little fatigued."

After he caught his breath, Adams convinced Reed and Washington that he was fine to stay in the game. He finished a perfect eighth inning.
