“I don’t think it’s broken or anything,” Gonzalez said after the game. “I was able to swing the bat. I’m going to be fine.”
Gonzalez stayed in the game, finishing 1 for 3 with a walk.
“It actually just made it numb,” he said. “I just kept moving it just to make sure I kept the feeling in it.”
Manager Terry Francona came out of the dugout to check on Gonzalez.
“It got him on his left hand on his knuckles," Francona said. "When I went out there he was actually pretty sore, but by the time he got around [the bases] and got to [third-base coach Tim Bogar] he said he was OK.”
