The one big downside to yesterday's thrilling come-from-behind win was the ankle injury to the red-hot Xander Bogaerts. So far this season, The X-Man is hitting .368, with 2 HRs and 9 RBIs. He's leading the team with 14 hits—including 7 doubles. His OPS is an astounding 1.111. After sliding into the Rays dugout going after an errant ball, Bogaerts injured his left ankle—but the severity of that injury is yet to be fully known. Reportedly, x-rays and other tests will be performed today. As the first-place Red Sox look to take on the .500 Evil Ones starting Tuesday, this injury could not come at a worse time. Stay tuned.
