Right elbow problem ends Ramirez's outing
SEATTLE -- Right-hander Erasmo Ramirez left Saturday's game 3-2 win over the Red Sox in the third inning with a right elbow problem.

"It's something going on with his right elbow," manager Eric Wedge said. "He got an MRI tonight. We won't get the results until tomorrow. We don't think it's anything too serious, but until we really get the results back on the MRI, we're not sure."

With two outs in the third, Ramirez threw a first-pitch strike to Boston's Mike Aviles before catcher Miguel Olivo went to the mound. After a few seconds, Olivo called to the dugout for trainer Rick Griffin. Following a conversation with Griffin and Wedge, Ramirez exited the game.

Ramirez had retired all eight batters he faced, including two strikeouts. With long reliever Hisashi Iwakuma scheduled for a spot start on Monday, left-hander Charlie Furbush came on in relief. The Mariners ended up using six of the seven available relievers in the bullpen, as the game lasted 11 innings.
