        BOSTON — Boston's Chris Stynes sustained two fractures in his left cheek area when hit by a pitch from Seattle's Aaron Sele on Wednesday night.

        Blood dripped from a gash as the second baseman was helped off the field after being struck in the second inning. X-rays revealed the fractures, but his vision was satisfactory, the Red Sox said.

        There was no word on how long Stynes would be sidelined.

        “The worst part of the whole night is we lost a player,” Red Sox manager Jimy Williams said. “I don't think anything out there was intentional.”

        Stynes, obtained in an offseason trade with Cincinnati, is hitting .286 in 14 games and had his only two homers in the three games before Wednesday night.

        He had played just the first two games of the season before going on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. Since being activated, he hit .298 in 12 games.
