ATLANTA (AP) -After hitting a home run and a double in the first two innings, J.D. Drew of the Boston Red Sox left Wednesday night's game against the Atlanta Braves because of tightness in his right quadriceps.
Drew, plagued by injuries throughout his career, led off the game with his sixth homer of the season and doubled in the second, coming around to score on David Ortiz's homer.
Drew didn't return to right field for the bottom of the second, a move the Red Sox said was strictly precautionary. They were leading 7-0 at the time.
