Boston LHP Hill leaves with left forearm injury

BY foxsports • June 1, 2011

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.
