Feeling light-headed, Davey leaves game early

WASHINGTON -- When Jordan Zimmermann left Friday night's game in the eighth inning, he handed the ball to bench coach Randy Knorr. Manager Davey Johnson was nowhere to be found.

Knorr said that Johnson left the dugout in the fourth inning because he felt light-headed. Knorr assumed his duties as manager for the rest of the game.

"Oh, he's fine," Knorr said. "I think he's just coming down with something. He got a little light-headed, so he just went back upstairs. He's fine, though. I think he might be catching a cold or something."

Ian Desmond said that he noticed that Johnson was missing from the dugout, but he was told that the manager was fine and didn't worry about it. Johnson did not speak to the media following Friday's 3-2 loss to the Mets, but he ran into reporters after grabbing a few things from his office.

"I'll survive," he said.
