Aceves’ right leg appeared to be bothering him when Girardi and a trainer went to the mound in the fifth. Aceves threw two warmup pitches and stayed in the game.
Girardi indicated Aceves would have tests, but the right-hander said the doctor told him he’s OK.
“I considered pulling him,” Girardi said. “It seemed to get better as time went on.”
