Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty left yesterday’s game with a head contusion after getting hit by a trio of baseballs thrown by various Chicago Cubs players in the fifth inning.
Hit #1: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta nails Piscotty in the right elbow, sending him to first base.
Hit #2: Arrieta tosses a wild pitch past catcher Willson Contreras and Piscotty took off towards second base, only to be plunked by a Contreras’ throw on his right elbow.
Hit #3: Piscotty bolts home after Javier Baez mishandles a grounder – Baez throws home trying to get Piscotty but nails him on the earflap of his batting helmet.
