Betts exits with foot contusion after collision

From ESPN - April 14, 2018

Boston Red Sox star Mookie Betts left Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles after suffering a left foot contusion on a play at home plate.

The Red Sox said X-rays came back negative.

Betts' leg bent awkwardly as the All-Star outfielder slid into Orioles catcher Chance Sisco while attempting to avoid a tag in the bottom of the first inning.
