|Milwaukee right-hander Ben Sheets left the Brewers' game against the Oakland Athletics in the first inning Thursday with irritation in a muscle in his right side.|
The irritation is in the same area that led to a season-ending injury last Aug. 26. He will see the team doctor Saturday.
Sheets allowed six of the seven batters he faced to reach base, giving up five runs on six hits. After Jason Kendall's RBI single, pitching coach Mike Maddux visited the mound. Moments later he was joined by manager Ned Yost and head trainer Roger Caplinger.
