Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval was having his best game of the season, going 2-for-2 with a single, a home run and three RBI, but was forced to leave the game in the top of the sixth inning. The team announced he left the game with neck soreness. The injury likely occurred in the top of the fourth inning when he dove and caught a Dalton Pompey pop up bunt. After making the catch he did a face plant into the ground. He hit his home run after making the play, but then was removed after an inning in the field. Brock Holt took over at third base with Daniel Nava moving from first base to right field and Allen Craig entering the game at first base. Sandoval came into the game hitting .273 with a homer and 8 RBI. For more Red Sox news, check out
