Los Angeles Angels first baseman Taylor Ward has been removed from the game after an unfortunate accident.

Ward was hit in the head by a sand dune while facing Toronto starter Alec 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.온라인카지노

On a 2-0 count, Ward saw a three-pitch 91.7-mph sinker high up in the zone and couldn’t avoid it, landing squarely on his left temple.

Ward collapsed from the impact and continued to struggle to his feet afterward, even as head coach Phil Nevin and trainers came 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.

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.
