Dunn injury flares again

Adam Dunn was out of the lineup Friday after experiencing a recurrence of the oblique pain that sidelined him for several games last week.

“He has that side [strain] again, so we’re just trying to take are of it and make sure nothing gets worse,” manager Robin Ventura said. “I’m hoping it’s just today, or tomorrow, but you never know. I guess any time a hitter has it in the rib area it can happen every day.”

Dunn missed two games in Detroit because of the problem, described as a strained right oblique.

Ventura had Dayan Viciedo in the designated hitter role batting seventh and Dewayne Wise playing left field and batting third.

The Sox also were without third baseman Kevin Youkilis, who flew home Friday to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.
