Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz left Friday night's game against the Cleveland Indians in the seventh inning with a bruised left heel.

The injury occurred while he ran through first base in the fifth inning. He is being evaluated today, according to the Boston Herald.

The newspaper also reported that Ortiz received a citation for his involvement in an auto accident before Friday's game in which no one was hurt.

According to the report, Ortiz's Audi R8 spun out of control while pulling out of a gas station on the way to Fenway Park. His car hit another car stopped at a traffic light and caused minor damage. Ortiz's car was damaged on the passenger's side while the front driver's side bumper of a woman's Volvo was dinged. A child was riding in the back seat of the Volvo.

Ortiz was cited for making an illegal turn.

"The good thing is that there were no injuries," Ortiz said. "I talked to the lady that was driving. I don't think she knows me at all. But she was good."

Ortiz said a traction control feature in his car caused the vehicle to spin.
