CHICAGO (AP) - Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli left Tuesday night’s game against the White Sox after injuring his left ring finger sliding into second base in the ninth inning.

With the game tied 1-1 and two outs, Napoli advanced to second on Donnie Veal’s wild pitch. Napoli slid head first into second and appeared to dislocate his left ring finger against the base.

He was 1 for 3 with a walk and two strikeouts Tuesday. He is hitting .302 with three home runs and nine RBIs on the season.
