Kevin Pillar was hit in the face by a 94.5 mph fastball in the seventh inning of the Mets’ game against the Braves. Jacob Webb was the one pitching. Pillar immediately hit the deck, with blood gushing from his face. After a short time on the ground he walked off the field with a towel pressed to his face.

Amazingly, he walked off under his own power.
Still, a frightening scene nonetheless. pic.twitter.com/6kPINtKIYn
