ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ has been hit in the head by a line drive and taken off the field on a stretcher during Toronto's game against Tampa Bay.
Desmond Jennings' second-inning liner caromed off the left side of Happ's head, and the ball went all the way into the right-field bullpen. Happ fell down at the front of the mound, holding his head with his glove and bare hand.
Jennings ended up on third base with a two-run triple. Team trainers, paramedics and medical officials rushed to Happ's aid as Tropicana Field fell into an eerie hush.
Jennings and players on both teams stood with their hands on their heads, visibly concerned about Happ. The left-hander was immobilized on a stretcher and waved with his right hand as he was wheeled off the field.
