BOSTON (AP) Melky Cabrera will undergo season-ending surgery next week after fracturing his right pinkie finger Friday night.

The Toronto Blue Jays' left fielder appeared to be injured when he went back into first base in the third inning in an unsuccessful attempt to avoid being picked off by Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez.

Cabrera remained in the game until he led off the sixth. After fouling a pitch off himself, he was checked by training staff and left the game. Anthony Gose singled and scored on a homer by Jose Bautista that gave Toronto a 4-3 lead.

Cabrera got a single in his only official at-bat and scored a run. He ends his season with a .301 batting average, 16 homers and 73 RBIs.
