The list of things that can't go the Red Sox' way keeps on growing. After hitting a two-run homer in the first inning, outfielder Rusney Castillo left the game prior to the top of the fifth inning. Castillo fouled a pitch off his left foot in the bottom of the fourth and took several minutes with the trainer before staying in the game. He struck out in that at-bat. The team announced it as a left foot contusion. "Rusney has left here today and he's going to get some imaging tomorrow and we'll know more about him as his status," Torey Lovullo said after the game. Alejandro De Aza replaced him, as Jackie Bradley Jr. switched from left field to right field and De Aza played left. Castillo entered the game batting .268 on the year. For more Red Sox news, visit
