Watch Nick Williams Take a Baseball to the Face

Nick Pivetta struck out a career-high 13 (13!) St. Louis batters. The Phillies bullpen once again filled me with rage and woe. They still won anyway.

But the big story of a dramatic walk-off win was that for the second time this season a baseball wrecked the face of a Phillies player. This time the victim was right fielder Nick Williams:

Williams had to exit the game because he is merely a baseball player:

An absolutely great point right here. Williams gets a 2 out of 10 on the grit scale for leaving the game. Points for bleeding, but this wasn’t a very Philly thing of him to do–he most certainly does NOT bring his lunch pail to work. He should have gone to the clubhouse, gotten stitched up, and later returned to a game that doesn’t permit re-entry. A valid comparison of two completely similar situations, for sure.

Anyway, Williams indicated after the game that he didn’t believe the injury was serious:

    Bet Sam C. walked to school in the snow uphill both ways when he was a kid too.

    Gabe again
    got the bullpen in a damn mess by no defining roles. I think the tan and roids are going to Gabe’s head. Adam Morgan in that spot? That’s not a move a major league manager makes.
