PHOENIX -- Arizona third baseman Mark Reynolds left Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Washington Nationals after he was hit in the head with a fastball in the sixth inning.
Nationals reliever Collin Balester faced Reynolds and, with a 1-1 count, fired a 95-m.p.h. fastball directly at Reynolds' head. Reynolds was motionless on the ground in the batter's box for a few moments, but eventually walked to the dugout under his own power. Later in the game, Reynolds was seen in the dugout talking with his teammates and did not appear to be seriously injured.
Reynolds leads the D'Backs with 25 home runs this season. In the fourth inning of this game, he belted a three-run homer which gave the D'Backs the lead for good.
