Shane Victorino leaves game due to injury
|04.24.13 at 6:41 pm ET|
Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino left his team’s game after the bottom of the sixth injury with an apparent injury. On a groundout to short in the sixth, Victorino could barely muster a jog down the first base line. After he was thrown out, he headed immediately down the tunnel with a team trainer, and the decision was made to remove him from the game for the top of the seventh inning, with Mike Carp entering the game in left field and Daniel Nava moving from left to right.
This represented the second time in five days that Victorino left a game due to injury. He also exited Saturday’s game due to tightness in his lower back, a condition that required him to sit out of Sunday’s day-night doubleheader against the Royals.
Victorino was 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI before his exit.
More information will be offered as the nature of Victorino’s injury gains detail.
