BOSTON (AP) _ Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has left the game against the Tampa Bay Rays after injuring his right shoulder while trying to break up a double play.

Ellsbury, the runnerup in the voting for AL MVP last year, was hurt in the fourth inning Friday when he slid into second base and Rays shortstop Reid Brignac landed on his right arm. Ellsbury immediately clutched his shoulder and stayed on the ground while
being tended to.

Ellsbury walked off the field while keeping his right arm bent at the elbow. He had singled and then was injured on a grounder by Dustin Pedroia.
