Drew leaves game with bruise under eye
Right fielder J.D. Drew left the Red Sox game against the Pirates in the bottom of the second inning with a left eye contusion.
Drew suffered the injury after fouling a pitch off his eye during batting practice before the game. He struck out looking to end the first inning.
Darnell McDonald replaced Drew in right field. McDonald's first cousin James McDonald was the starting pitcher for the Pirates.
The Red Sox are already shorthanded in the outfield with Carl Crawford on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.
