BOSTON (AP) -Boston Red Sox right fielder J.D. Drew left Tuesday night's game against Detroit in the eighth inning after crashing into the outfield wall pursuing a home run. He bruised his lower back.
Drew smacked into Fenway Park's short bullpen fence while chasing Brandon Inge's third-inning homer. Drew remained in the game until the top of the eighth, when he was replaced in the outfield by Eric Hinske.
Drew was 1-for-3 with an RBI-single in the game and is batting .250 for the season.
