Both teams left the field to allow second base umpire Phil Cuzzi to warm up behind the plate. According to Alex Speier of The Boston Globe, Hallion was undergoing concussion protocols.

The game proceeded with three umpires. The Twins had a 1-0 lead over the host Red Sox at the time of the incident.
