Victorino expected to start Sunday after hamstring injury

By Star-Advertiser news services


Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell says Hawaii-born outfielder Shane Victorino is expected to be in the lineup Sunday after leaving the game Friday night for a recurring hamstring injury.

Victorino "felt better than I think he expected to feel," Farrell said before today's game, which the Red Sox lost to the Yankees 5-2.

MLB.com reports Victorino left Friday night's game against the Yankees in the top of the fourth inning with tightness in his left hamstring, a nagging injury that has kept him out of several games.

When he hit into a double play in the bottom of the third, Victorino did not appear to be moving well down the line, MLB.com reported. Victorino went into the clubhouse, and did not reappear when it was time for the Red Sox to take the field in the fourth. Daniel Nava replaced him in right field.

Victorino has started in only 59 of Boston's 98 games, according to MLB.com.
