Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino cleared to play after crashing into wall
The 32-year-old outfielder stayed in the game for a few innings before being removed. He was later taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for X-rays on his ribs and back. They came back negative.
Victorino went 1-for-3 on the day before being lifted in favor of a pinch-hitter. He is hitting .308 with two home runs and 10 RBI and three stolen bases. Victorino is 12 of 35 since missing seven games due to a strained back.
