BOSTON (AP) - Boston right fielder Conor Jackson left Sunday’s game against Texas in the top of the fourth after running into the wall.

He hit the wall at full speed attempting to catch Ian Kinsler’s third-inning RBI triple. He was holding his left arm and flexing his right knee after the play.

Jackson was checked by a trainer and manager Terry Francona, but stayed in the game. He was replaced by Darnell McDonald when the Red Sox took the field in the fourth.

Jackson was making his first start in right since being acquired from Oakland on August 31 for a minor league pitcher and cash.

He bounced into a double play in his only at-bat.
