Ross, Middlebrooks suffer injuries diving for foul ball

Looks like the Red Sox have suffered more injuries, this time to catcher David Ross and third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who dove for the same foul ball in the fifth inning.

Ross left the game with a leg quad contusion in the fifth inning while Middlebrooks left the game before the seventh inning with “right side pain.”

The ball, hit by Minnesota Twins’ right fielder Chris Parmelee in the fifth inning, drifted toward the railing where Middlebrooks crashed into the railing along third base while Ross also dove and crashed into Middlebrooks.

Ross tried to continue, but came off the field and replaced by Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Ross was flexing his leg, but had problems squatting behind the plate.

Middlebrooks stayed in the game, but came out for Pedro Ciriaco in the top of the 7th.
