I don't want to speculate on what it was, but with the immediacy of him calling to the dugout and the way he went off the field I'd be shocked if he doesn't find himself on the DL.

Of course it could have just been a charley horse and he could be fine.

That may have worked to our advantage, cruelly, in that inning. With our depleted bench and bullpen James McDonald wound up replacing Tabata on the basepaths. Inge's hit could have scored McDonald, but it would have been close and a good throw would have been an out with McDonald on the bases, but probably a fairly easy run for Tabata since he'd be off on contact. Weeks seemed to be over-thinking the play to come and he winds up kicking the ball 50 feet away, allowing McDonald to trot home and Inge to wind up at third.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
