Molina breaks two bones above wrist

By ANDRES YBARRA, Associated Press Writer

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Anaheim catcher Bengie Molina broke two bones above his left wrist in the game-ending play of Wednesday's 6-5 loss to Minnesota and will miss the rest of the season.

With Anaheim leading 5-4, Shannon Stewart hit a hard shot down the left-field line. Garrett Anderson's throw home beat pinch-runner Dustan Mohr, but Mohr lowered his shoulder and collided with Molina's glove, knocking the ball loose.

Molina, whose wrist snapped back on the play, was on the ground for several moments before teammates helped him to his feet. X-rays revealed the a broken radius and ulna above his left wrist.

``We've seen how Bengie stays in there tough on those plays,'' said closer Troy Percival, who allowed Stewart's hit. ``It just didn't work out this time. He had the ball, and I think (Mohr) just got him at a really bad angle.''

Molina, who didn't speak to reporters, needed help getting dressed in the clubhouse.

The defending World Series champions, who are 67-72, have had injuries all season. Aaron Sele, Kevin Appier, Darin Erstad, Adam Kennedy and Percival are among the players who've been on the disabled list.

``If we were in the middle of the playoff hunt, it would mean a ton,'' Percival said. ``But with where we're at right now, I'm just concerned about making sure he gets healthy and that we have him next year.''

Mohr said Molina had the plate covered on the play.

``We're all concerned about Molina,'' Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. ``Dustan was just playing the game. He wasn't trying to hurt anyone. But it's unfortunate that happened.''

Time to let him go.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
