Thames leaves game because of dizziness

BY foxsports • September 3, 2011

Toronto Blue Jays left fielder Eric Thames has left their game against the New York Yankees because of dizziness after striking out in the first inning.

Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar did not go out to the field in the fifth inning Saturday because of a jammed left wrist. Escobar grounded out to second in the top half of the inning.

Batting second Saturday, Thames struck out looking and never went out to take his position for the bottom half of the first. Dewayne Wise took over in left field.

Thames had two of Toronto's four hits in a 3-2 loss to New York on Friday night.

When Escobar left, Mike McCoy moved from center field to shortstop, Wise switched to center and Mark Teahen entered in left field.
