The Boston Red Sox are hoping Shane Victorino's latest hamstring injury won't linger the way the last one did.

Victorino left Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels with tightness in his left hamstring and will be unavailable for Sunday's series finale. He appeared to hobble home after breaking from third base in the sixth inning on a single by Dustin Pedroia. Victorino remained in the game until the ninth, when he was lifted for a pinch hitter.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Victorino felt better after receiving treatment Sunday and is day-to-day. Victorino suffered a similar injury May 20 against the Chicago White Sox and was placed on the 15-day disabled list four days later. He also has missed several games this season with back issues, which Farrell believes is likely “inter-related” to the hamstring issues.
