Bowker pulled from game with knee soreness
John Bowker was pulled after the fourth inning during Saturday night’s game against the Astros due to Right knee soreness.
Manager John Russell said that the soreness was the byproduct of Bowker fouling a ball off his right knee earlier in the week. His knee unexpectedly tightened up after a few innings of play on Saturday.
Bowker went 0-1, reaching on an error against Astros’ Bud Norris. It was his 10th straight start and his 14th start since being re-called on September 1st.
