2/19 Bunt tourney update

Dale Sveum was replaced as the pitcher for the team bunting tournament in the middle of an at-bat Tuesday because of a nasty blister.

“I’ve got a pretty good blister and I wasn’t feeling the ball too much,” said Sveum, whose delivery became very irratic. “I threw a little bit too much to the front office [on Saturday] and my finger’s a little bit raw.”

Players to advance on Tuesday included Michael Brenly, Jeff Samardzija, Jaye Chapman, Brent Lillibridge, Darnell McDonald, Blake Parker, Brett Jackson and Alberto Cabrera. Cabrera won by default because his opponent, Cory Wade, didn’t show. Parker beat Kyuji Fujikawa, who batted right-handed. The Japanese pitcher usually hits left-handed.

“No good,” Fujikawa said as he walked off the field.
