BOSTON (AP) _ Home plate umpire Jerry Layne left Wednesday’s game between Boston and Oakland after the third inning because he was hit on the left hand by a foul tip.

Layne was hit by Derek Norris’ foul tip in the top of the third. Before the bottom of the inning, second base umpire Mike Estabrook ran off the field, presumably to get the equipment on. The bottom of the third was played with just three umpires. Estabrook returned for the top of the fourth and took over behind the plate.

Layne walked toward the Red Sox dugout after calling out Shane Victorino on strikes to end the third.
