Simon exits

WASHINGTON — Orioles closer Alfredo Simon exited with one out in the 10th inning after appearing to have pulled something in his left leg while running to cover the first base bag.
Simon hustled over to cover the bag to record the out on Willie Harris, who hit the ball to diving first baseman Luke Scott.  Television replays showed Simon coming up short on his stride and after securing the out, Simon grabbed his left leg in pain. Head athletic trainer Richie Bancells and manager Dave Trembely both came out to see Simon and after several minutes he limped off with the aid of Bancells.
Simon had tossed a 1-2-3 ninth to help send the game into extra innings. He was replaced by sidearmer Cla Meredith with the scored tied at 3. Meredith surrendered the decisive homer to Josh Willingham.
