Hudson leaves game after fouling ball off foot
TORONTO -- White Sox second baseman Orlando Hudson was forced to leave Wednesday's 9-5 win at Rogers Centre in the sixth inning after fouling a 1-2 pitch off his left foot and sustaining a bruised big toe.

Hudson, who immediately went down in the batter's box, was tended to by team trainers and assisted off the field in obvious pain.

Second baseman Gordon Beckham, who was supposed to get the night off, entered as Hudson's replacement and struck out against Blue Jays starter Ricky Romero.

Hudson was playing in his first game since Aug. 8 and finished the contest 1-for-3. He singled in the fourth inning.

The 34-year-old, who began his Major League career with the Blue Jays in 2002, was a fan favorite over his four years in Toronto.
