Pedroia Fouls Ball Off Foot, Leaves Game

This article is more than 9 years old.

Dustin Pedroia was removed from the Boston Red Sox game at San Francisco in the top of the third inning Friday night after he fouled a ball off his left foot.

Pedroia was examined by an athletic trainer and checked on by manager Terry Francona, but finished the at-bat to draw a leadoff walk from Jonathan Sanchez. Pedroia was then lifted at first and Mike Cameron entered as a pinch-runner.

It was a tough blow for Boston, which arrived in the Bay Area at 4 a.m. after a 13-11, 10-inning win at Colorado on Thursday night. Pedroia went 5 for 5 with a career-high three home runs, including a go-ahead two-run drive in the 10th.
