Cishek bounces back from short illness

Cishek bounces back from short illness
PITTSBURGH -- A brief illness sidelined reliever Steve Cishek recently, but he wasn't kept out for long.

"There wasn't really any time for me to run out of rhythm. It was only a day," Cishek said. "Just missing one day doesn't really affect me that much."

Cishek pitched on Thursday, throwing a scoreless inning against the Cubs. He has made 41 appearances this season, going 4-1 with a 2.03 ERA. In save opportunities he's 2-for-5.

"It was like a 24-hour bug or something," Cishek said on Friday. "It was just a miserable day for me. I bounced back pretty quickly."
