BOSTON -- After turning his left wrist diving for a hard grounder in the top of the fourth inning of Boston's 4-3 loss to the Toronto on Saturday night, Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre received a scan in between innings and was able to remain in the game after results showed no serious damage.

“Everything seems to be intact,” said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. “Obviously, he’s a pretty tough kid. We’ll check him in the morning. There’s a chance he’s going to be sore. He’s pretty tough. We’ll see how he’s doing.”

The Blue Jays’ John McDonald hit a hard grounder to the left of Beltre, and when the third baseman attempted to snare it, he landed awkwardly. It was clear he was in some pain, and second baseman Marco Scutaro came over to check on him and signaled for the trainer.

Francona and trainer Greg Barajas sprinted out to check on Beltre, who he stayed in the game.

Offensively, Beltre extended his hitting streak to nine games and is hitting .441 during this stretch.
