Conjunctivitis knocks Angels' Anderson out of game

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Garret Anderson of the Los Angeles Angels
left after two innings of Game 3 of the American League Division
Series against Boston on Sunday because of conjunctivitis in his
swollen right eye.

The left fielder flied out to right field in his only at-bat. He
was replaced by Reggie Willits.

First baseman Casey Kotchman didn't play and was replaced by
Kendry Morales. Kotchman had a non-baseball-related medical
condition and was not available, manager Mike Scioscia said.

Vladimir Guerrero started in right field for the Angels.

He left Friday's 6-3 loss in the eighth inning after being hit
by a pitch on his left shoulder. The slugger had treatment and
tests on Saturday.

"He's good to go," Scioscia said Sunday.

Guerrero started in right field Friday for the first time since
Sept. 4 after an irritated right triceps had limited him to
designated hitter duties.

Juan Rivera was the Angels' designated hitter Sunday, while the
rest of the Angels' lineup remained the same. Rivera was a
pinch-hitter in Game 2.
