♦ The Yankees, who have managed to overcome a rash of injuries and grab first place in the American League East, continued their march to the trainer’s room Thursday, as veteran pitcher Andy Pettitteleft a 3-2 loss to the Mariners in the fifth inning with a tight left trapezius muscle in his back.
“It was affecting his velocity, and that’s why I took him out. It’s muscular, but I don’t know what that means moving forward,” manager Joe Girardi said. “He works through a lot, that’s the bottom line. But when I saw the arm speed …”
Pettitte, 40, missed a start earlier in the season with another back issue, but he’s not sure if this is related.
“I couldn’t get extension at all,” Pettitte said. “I felt like I was cutting almost everything off. It’s trying to throw it in there almost slower than slow, to tell you the truth.”
Added Pettitte: “There’s no doubt I’m getting old, but I don’t want to sit here and say that’s the exact reason for this. I feel good, and you’d think that at the intense level I had to compete last year [beginning spring training late in his comeback season], that’s when I would have broken down.”
Catcher Chris Stewart also departed Thursday’s game early, leaving for an MRI on his left groin after pulling up while running the bases in the seventh inning.
“You’ve got to move forward. That’s the bottom line,” Girardi said. “Injuries are a part of the game, and some years you’re going to have more than others. Right now we have more than a few. … It’s no excuse. You have to find a way to get it done.”
♦ Sacramento appears set to remain an NBA city, as the Maloof family reportedly agreed to sell a 65 percent share of the Kings to a local group headed by software tycoon Vivek Ranadive. The NBA, which has pushed for the team to remain in Sacramento despite the Maloofs efforts to sell to a group that wanted to move the franchise to Seattle, is expected to approve the deal next week.
“It’s the start of a new era,” Ranadive said.
The plan includes a new $447 million downtown arena that already has been approved by the Sacramento City Council, after urging from Mayor Kevin Johnson.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said Trickle called and said “there would be a dead body and it would be his.” His body was found near his pickup truck at a cemetery in Boger City, N.C., about 40 miles northwest of Charlotte.
Trickle was the Winston Cup Rookie of the Year in 1989 at age 48 and competed in more than 300 Cup races.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Dick Trickle on his passing today,” NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France said. “Dick was a legend in the short-track racing community, particularly in his home state of Wisconsin, and he was a true fan favorite. Personalities like Dick Trickle helped shape our sport. He will be missed.”
