Milligan bruises right shoulder

May 23, 1992|By Milton Kent

Orioles first baseman Randy Milligan left last night's game with the California Angels in the eighth inning with a bruised right shoulder.

Milligan was hurt when he fielded a tapper on the infield grass, then dove across the first-base bag to tag out Angels left fielder Luis Polonia.

Milligan landed on the shoulder and left the game immediately. He was replaced by David Segui.

After the game, Milligan returned to the clubhouse with an ice pack wrapped around his shoulder. He said the shoulder was "a little stiff," but that it shouldn't force him to miss any playing time.

"It's no big deal. I have a bruised ego, a bruised shoulder. But I made the play. That's the important thing," said Milligan.

Milligan also stretched ligaments in that shoulder in an April 22 collision with second baseman Bill Ripken at Royals Stadium on a play during which he also suffered a concussion.
