In the first game of a doubleheader for the Philadelphia Phillies, Ben Revere broke his right foot.
In a plate appearance in the bottom of the 11th inning, the Phillies’ center fielder fouled a ball off his foot, and was clearly in serious pain. However, with no one left on the bench for head coach Charlie Manuel, Revere persevered. Unfortunately, the result was a double play ball in a 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox.
Revere will be evaluated by a specialist on Monday, and will go on the disabled list.
Since April, Revere has hit .347, ranking sixth in the MLB over that amount of time. For the season, he has hit .305 with 17 RBI and a .338 OBP.
John Mayberry Jr. replaced Revere in center field for the second game of the doubleheader in Philadelphia.
