Bad For Your Health
Albert Pujols is bad for your health... if you're a San Diego Padre, that is.
SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Padres pitcher Chris Young and catcher Josh Bard were knocked out of Wednesday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals by Albert Pujols within a span of two batters."Line drive off Young's face"... dang... While I'm happy that the Cards crushed the Padres last night, you never want to see players hurt. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Tylenol all around for the Padres, barkeep!
Pujols hit a line drive off Young's face in the third inning, breaking the right-hander's nose. Young immediately fell on his backside and put his right hand up to his face. Blood was running down his face.
...Aaron Miles and Pujols scored on the play. But right fielder Brian Giles' throw arrived at the plate at the same time as Pujols, who slid and caught Bard's left leg.
Bard went down in a heap and stayed on the ground for a few minutes before he was helped off the field, dragging his left leg. The Padres said Bard sprained his left ankle.
