LOS ANGELES (AP) -Plate umpire Kerwin Danley was taken off the field in an ambulance after he was struck just below the throat by Brad Penny's fastball that Dodgers catcher Russell Martin missed in the fourth inning Saturday night.
The frightening accident took place with Colorado's Garrett Atkins batting. Play was delayed for 18 minutes.
Crew members Brian Runge and Greg Gibson rushed to Danley's side and first-base ump Angel Campos went to the umpires' dressing room to put on the gear to work home plate.
Runge held Danley's left hand and patted him on the chest during the delay.
