BOSTON (CBS) – JD Drew was taken out of Sunday’s 4-2 Red Sox win over the Pittsburgh Pirates with an eye injury.

Drew hurt his left eye during batting practice before Sunday’s game. He managed to play an inning-and-a half before being pulled from the lineup in the bottom of the second.

“He was in the cage before the game. He bunted, and the ball came up and hit him in the eye,” said manager Terry Francona after the victory. “He got a pretty good shiner and it was started to affect his vision.”

Drew struck out looking with two-on and two-out in the top of the first inning and fielded one ball in right field in the bottom of the inning. He was replaced by Darnell McDonald in the bottom of the second.
