A quick injury update that manager Jim Riggleman said Carlos Silva may not miss a start after coming out today in the fourth inning with back spasms.
Riggleman said the injury didn't appear serious and called it "just a little spasm.''
Silva seemed a little more upset afterward and when asked if he would make his next start responded "ask the trainer.''
He said it bothered him all game but caught up to him in the fourth when Kelly Shoppach hit what appearaed to be a low fastball into left field for a three-run homer that broke open the game.
