Boston LHP Hill leaves with left forearm injury

Red Sox reliever Rich Hill left Wednesday’s game in the seventh

inning with a left forearm injury after facing just one Chicago

White Sox batter.

The left-hander, who had pitched eight scoreless innings in his

other eight outings this season, clutched his pitching elbow with

his right hand after walking Adam Dunn on seven pitches.

Manager Terry Francona and a trainer rushed to the mound and

Hill, who had retired 24 of the 30 batters he faced before

Wednesday, went to the clubhouse.

He was replaced by Daniel Bard, who retired two batters to

escape a bases-loaded jam.
