Kelley leaves after throwing pitch in 10th
SEATTLE (AP) - Mariners reliever Shawn Kelley went to the ground with a strained oblique muscle after throwing just three pitches in the 10th inning against Texas.

Kelley entered the game at the start of the 10th with the Mariners and Rangers tied 1-1 Tuesday. After his third pitch to Rangers' shortstop Elvis Andrus, Kelley squatted down then fell to his back on the grass near the mound. He sat up after a few moments then walked off the field with trainers.

Denny Stark entered to replace Kelly and got Andrus and Michael Young on fly outs before the Rangers rallied with six runs in the 10th, capped by Jared Saltalmacchia's grand slam.

Kelley, a non-roster invitee to spring training, is 1-1 with a 1.54 ERA this season for the Mariners.
