NEW YOKR (AP) — Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres left Friday night’s game against Boston after aggravating his right groin while beating out an infield hit that sparked a three-run fourth inning.

Torres hit a grounder that shortstop Ceddane Rafaela snagged with a dive. Rafaela got to his feet and threw to first, and Torres beat the throw to load the bases with one out in a scoreless game.

He immediately left the game and was replaced by Oswaldo Cabrera. New York went on to take a 3-0 lead.

Torres also left a June 20 game against Baltimore because of right groin tightness. The Yankees said he was examined at the stadium and there were no plans for imaging at this time.

Torres is hitting .223 with eight homers and 33 RBIs, but batted .308 (8 for 26) in his last seven games.

New York already was missing first baseman Anthony Rizzo, sidelined since June 16 by a broken forearm, and designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton, out since June 22 because of a strained hamstring.
