Pablo Sandoval Leaves Red Sox-White Sox Game After Strike-Three Hit-By-Pitch


BOSTON — For the second time in two nights, Pablo Sandoval did not complete a full nine innings for the Boston Red Sox.

After being removed from Wednesday’s game due to dehydration, the third baseman left Thursday’s contest in the fourth inning after a fastball from Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale struck him in the forearm.

Josh Rutledge immediately took third baseman duties, but because Sandoval swung at the pitch in question, it was called a strike — strike three, in fact. That strikeout ended the fourth inning for the Red Sox, stranding runners on the corners.

Sandoval went 0-for-2 in his two plate appearances, striking out twice. The Red Sox announced his injury as a left forearm contusion.
