Indians’ pitcher Carrasco hit in face by line drive


It was a scary moment at Cleveland’s Progressive Field Tuesday night, a very scary moment.

Cleveland Indians‘ starter Carlos Carrasco lay flat on the mound, his face on the ground, legs spread wide after being hit in the face by a line drive.

Manager Terry Francona and a trainer ran out first and stood over Carrasco’s lifeless body. Outfielder Adam Eaton, who was on second base dropped to his knees, his batting helmet covering his face. Other teammates gathered around the mound.

Chicago White Sox outfielder Melky Cabrera was there too, obviously very concerned. The ball had come off of his bat, just prior to bouncing off of Carrasco’s glove and into his jaw.

Carrasco was not responsive at first as the trainers checked on him but he came around and so did the cart that had emerged from behind the left field wall.
