Pearce injured on throw from first
Third baseman Delwyn Young made a wild throw to first on Jonny Gomes' grounder in the second inning Monday night. Pearce chased down the ball, planted his right foot for a quick throw to second and twisted his ankle. Gomes was safe.
Pearce was examined on the field by a trainer and jogged in the outfield before remaining in the game. He left an inning later.
Pearce was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis on May 4. He has been on a hitting tear, going 7 for 18 before the injury.
