It was a near perfect afternoon at Fenway Park in Monday's home opener for the Red Sox, although there was one instance where Red Sox fans had to hold their breath. In the eighth inning left fielder Hanley Ramirez fouled a ball off his right foot. After they saw him hobbling around manager John Farrell and the trainer went out to check on him. He stayed in the game and eventually worked a walk, but was in noticeable discomfort getting down to first base. He was removed for a pinch-runner, Daniel Nava. Even though he left the game everything is expected to be fine. "I'll be back in there tomorrow," Ramirez said. "Just fouled it on top of my toe. But we took an X-ray and everything is good." Ramirez went 0-for-2 with two walks and was hit by a pitch in the Red Sox' 9-4 win. For more Red Sox news, visit weei.com/redsox.
