Regular season's first major injury

The Salem Sacrifices will be without the services of one of their top starters for most of the season. Philip Allensworth, who won 14 games for Salem last season, had to leave last night's start against Trenton in the 2nd inning with elbow pain. X-rays later revealed a torn ligament that will require surgery later this week. Allensworth could be out about 3-4 months; he is scheduled to fly down to Alabama to meet with noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews tomorrow.
