Dustin Pedroia Suffers ‘Stinger’ in Left Leg Against Indians, Will Likely Receive Day Off


Dustin Pedroia slipped rounding second base on Monday night against the Indians and was forced to leave the game. He limped off the field gingerly, but he said after the game that he was just trying to get the feeling back after his leg went numb.

Pedroia, of course, had his left foot surgically repaired after breaking it last year. Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that Pedroia was likely going to to receive a day off on Tuesday anyway because of a day game scheduled for Wednesday.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
