BOSTON (AP) — Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson sprained his right ankle while making a play Tuesday night and exited the game at Boston.
Anderson planted his right foot awkwardly on the wet dirt behind second base after fielding a grounder and throwing to first. He hopped a few steps on his left leg before falling to the ground in obvious pain.
Manager Rick Renteria and a trainer put Anderson on their shoulders and helped him to the dugout, keeping all weight off his right leg.
The White Sox said in the seventh inning that X-rays were negative.
The start of the game was delayed 24 minutes because of rain, which continued to fall heavily at times — through the first five innings.
