Adams tagged with loss, Kratz to have surgery

MINNEAPOLIS -- Phillies setup man Mike Adams pitched for the first time in five days on Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to the Twins at Target Field.

It did not go well. He allowed a four-pitch walk to Jamey Carroll to start the eighth inning, then a single to Joe Mauer. Adams got the next two hitters out, but Antonio Bastardo replaced him and allowed Carroll to score on Justin Morneau's go-ahead single, as Adams took the loss to drop to 1-4 with a 4.22 ERA.

Adams had not pitched since Thursday in Milwaukee because of soreness in his right biceps. He said he felt good enough to pitch, although he would not say he feels completely healthy.

In other injury news, Phillies catcher Erik Kratz will have surgery on Wednesday in Philadelphia to repair the torn medial meniscus in his left knee.
