Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was taken to a Houston area hospital for X-rays after being hit by a pitch on Sunday night.

Pedroia was hit in the rib area with a 92-mph pitch in the seventh inning of Boston's 6–5 win by Astros James Hoyt.

Pedroia yelled at Hoyt before being heading to first base and ended up leaving the game for good a short time later.

"The pitch hit him in the left lat area, left rib cage," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "It continued to swell and tighten up. He was losing a lot of range of motion with his left arm, so we had to get him off his feet. But we'll have a better read once he goes through the exam here at a local hospital."
