In Game Update:

We finally have baseball in Arlington after a 2 hour and 25 minute rain delay. In the top of the first inning, Jeter led off with a hit, but the inning was quickly shut down after. Joba Chamberlain, the savior himself, has been through .2 of an innning. Joba gave off a leadoff triple to Ian Kinsler, which unfortunately knocked the great Melky Cabrera out of the game. Melky lunged for the ball in deep CF and slammed his arm into the wall very awkwardly. As he walked off the field, he kept moving his arm in a circle, which clearly indicated a shoulder injury. There hasn't been any word on the severity of the injury, but I will make sure to inform you as soon as I can. 

On a more positive note, A-Rod made a great play to get Kinsler out at third after the triple. Michael Young, the next batter, grounded to third, and Kinsler danced a little too far off the bag. In a foot race to the bag, A-Rod dove and just got Kinsler. 

Bases loaded for Marlon Byrd now... Joba needs to get out of this inning. 

Best of luck to Melky. I hope that this injury won't cause him to miss time...
