“It’s good to have an opportunity to play every single day. It kind of surprised me. I never thought about playing third in my life and now, I’m getting a chance to play here.”
The Red Sox had a scare in the seventh inning when Victorino lost his footing on the warning track chasing a fly ball and crashed into the wall. His head struck a bolt and he came away a bit shaken up.
Victorino left Sunday’s game in Detroit after smacking into a wall at Comerica Park. It has happened several times this season.
“Another wall, another day,” Farrell said. “It’s not that he suffered a gash but it hit him a tough spot right above the ear. He’s finds a wall on a daily basis.”
Victorino stayed in the game. He’s from Hawaii but he plays like a hockey player.
