White Sox starter Gavin Floyd leaves game early

Chicago White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd has left his start against

the Oakland Athletics after only seven pitches because of an

the mound. The right-hander left the game immediately, grabbing his

right shoulder and trying to loosen it as he walked off the


Tony Pena came in and got Davis to fly out to center field.
