Jesus Flores makes plate appearance
Catcher Jesus Flores entered Wednesday’s game against the Phillies as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning. Flores grounded out to third baseman Pedro Feliz for the first out of the inning.
It was Flores’ first appearance since May 9 against the Diamondbacks. Flores had missed three months because of a right shoulder contusion.
Flores hurt the shoulder on May 9, when he was hit by a Chris Young foul tip. Flores was in pain for several minutes, but remained in the game before being taken out in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Flores will remain a pinch-hitter for the rest of the season.
