Red Sox OF Victorino Leaves Game with Leg Injury

Red Sox B in Black

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino pulled up lame on a double-play groundout and left the game against the New York Yankees on Friday night.

Victorino hit a grounder to second base in the third inning and hobbled down the first-base line. He left the game and was replaced in right field at the top of the fourth by Daniel Nava.

Victorino was 0 for 2 in the game. He is batting .287 on the season.
