Update 9:28 pm: Maine left game with "stiffness in his pitching arm." Kevin Burkhardt relays that Maine was not very happy to get pulled.
Well, I didn't see anything. Either did Gary Cohen or Keith Hernandez, but John Maine was begrudgingly removed from the game in the fifth inning after only recording one out.
Maine struck out the side in the fourth, and after his first two pitches in the fifth, Jerry Manuel trotted out to the mound. He was allowed to throw warm-up pitches, which he did not seem too enthused to do. The first pitch he delivered to a batter after Manuel's visit was jacked for a solo shot to right field.
Maine then struck out opposing pitcher Ricky Nolasco before Manuel came back out to the mound and pulled the pitcher from the game. Maine did not look pleased to get the hook so early and seemingly without injury.
Carlos Muniz will take over for Maine.
