9/25 Another scary moment
Cardinals pitcher Blake Hawksworth was struck on the right side of his face by a line drive by Sam Fuld with one out in the fifth and knocked out of the game. Hawksworth had started the inning in place of Chris Carpenter. The pitcher fell to the ground after being hit but was able to walk off the field under his own power.
It’s been a scary week for the Cubs. Last Sunday in Miami, Tyler Colvin was hit in the chest by a broken bat. He was home, recuperating and done for the season.
