Boston Red Sox starting second baseman Dustin Pedroia came out of Monday afternoon's game in the top of the sixth inning after suffering an apparent wrist injury on a diving inning-ending play in the bottom of the fifth. Pedroia was replaced by Nick Punto, and no official word has been released by the team on Pedroia's condition.
Pedroia was 1-for-3 with an RBI before being pulled from the game. Pedroia slapped an infield single to second in the second inning, allowing Daniel Nava to score, giving Boston a 4-1 lead at the time. Pedroia would then advance to second base on a bad throw. At the time of Pedroia's injury, the Red Sox were leading the Detroit Tigers, 5-2.
Pedroia is batting .295 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 48 games played this season.
