BOSTON (AP) — Houston Astros right-hander Jake Odorizzi collapsed with a leg injury while running to cover first base in the fifth inning Monday night against the Boston Red Sox and was taken off the Fenway Park field on a stretcher. The team said he had “left lower leg discomfort,” and manager Dusty Baker said Odorizzi would get an MRI. Baker said the pitcher was on crutches, wearing a boot and in good spirits after the game. Odorizzi, who entered the game with a 15 2/3 inning shutout streak, appeared to twist his left leg awkwardly on the delivery to Kiké Hernandez.
