Benintendi Hopeful To Start On Wednesday Despite Knee

Andrew Benintendi left Tuesday's 10-4 over the Cardinals after being hit on the left knee by a pitch in the big, 8-run fifth inning. He remained in the game, but was lifted in the top of the sixth with Boston up 9-0. Multiple sources are reporting that manager John Farrell is "hopeful" that the 23-year-old left-fielder can play on Wednesday night. 'Benny Ballgame' is hitting .419 so far in August.
