Shane Victorino tripled and scored a run in the sixth inning of Saturday’s game against the Angels. He appeared to cross the plate with a limp, though, and he was eventually lifted for a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning.
Jonny Gomes pinch-hit for Victorino in the ninth inning with the Red Sox leading 7-3. While it might have been a precautionary move more than anything, manager John Farrell said after Boston’s 11-inning defeat that Victorino is dealing with left hamstring tightness.
According to Farrell, Victorino, who spent time on the disabled list with a hamstring issue earlier this season, will be re-evaluated Sunday.
