After fouling a ball off his right foot in his second at-bat (third inning), Dustin Pedroia was forced to exit the Red Sox‘€™ Friday night game.

The second baseman left what resulted in the Sox’€™ 5-3 loss after running out a ground ball in the bottom of the eighth inning.

‘€œHe fouled a ball off the right foot. He came out, obviously, he’€™s sore,’€ said Red Sox manager John Farrell. ‘€œWe’€™ll check him in the morning to see, or when he reports tomorrow, to see if he’€™s available. He’€™s a little bit sore after [Saturday night].’€

After the game, Pedroia underwent a Fluoroscan that proved negative. In 2010, he underwent surgery after fouling a ball off his left foot.
