David Wright Drilled By Pitch To Head; Leaves Game

An article by posted on August 15, 2009

David Wright was drilled in the head by a 2-0 pitch thrown by Matt Cain in the bottom of the fourth inning during today’s game.

Wright walked off the field under his own power, and Fernando Tatis replaced him as a pinch runner.

An absolutely scary sight to say the least as Wright lied motionless on the ground for 2-3 minutes. It was a good sign that he walked off the field under his own power.

The 0-2 pitch smacked Wright in the helmet, knocking it off his head. Wright crumpled to the dirt face-first and did not move for about two minutes as trainers tended to him. Eventually, he turned over to sit up, and he walked off the field with the help of the training staff.

More to come…
