Ortiz leaves game after fouling ball off foot

BOSTON (AP) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz has left Sunday's game against Seattle in the sixth inning, limping to the dugout after fouling a ball off his right foot two innings earlier.

Ortiz fouled a ball off his foot in the fourth, was down on the ground for a while before continuing his at-bat and striking out.

He singled off the base of the right-field wall in the sixth, but limped badly down the line and barely reached first before the ball was thrown in.

Boston manager John Farrell and a team trainer immediately came out of the dugout and Ortiz left the game for pinch runner Kelly Johnson.
