Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward was removed from the game after an unfortunate accident.
Ward was struck in the head by a sand dune while facing Toronto starter Alex Manoa with one out in the top of the fifth inning of the Angels’ game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Tuesday.
On a 2-0 count, Ward saw a three-pitch 91.7 mph sinker high and away from his body and was unable to avoid it and was struck squarely in the left temple area.
After collapsing from the impact, Ward continued to struggle to get up, even as head coach Phil Nevin and trainers came over to check on him. He got up under his own power, but was eventually carted off the field.
Toronto players knelt and watched as he received treatment, showing their support for their opponent and wishing him well.
Manoa, who threw the ball, appeared to be the most shaken. He wrapped his hands around his head in agony as his pitch struck the batter in the head, and remained on the ground for the rest of the game as he was treated.온라인카지노
It was bad enough that he hurt the batter, but it was worse that he gave up a run on a free pass with the bases loaded, and he eventually walked off the mound.
In relief, Hennessis Cabrera retired the next two batters in a row and didn’t allow another run. In 4 1/3 innings, he allowed one run on four hits with three walks and six strikeouts.
