Dustin Pedroia Injury: Red Sox 2B Leaves Game In The Sixth Inning

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.
