ST. LOUIS (AP) -St. Louis Cardinals catcher Gary Bennett left Tuesday night's game after being hit in the neck in the second inning by Aaron Harang of the Cincinnati Reds.
Bennett appeared to be dazed by the impact of the breaking ball from the right-hander after getting back to his feet. He walked to first with trainer Barry Weinberg and it appeared he was going to stay in the game, but before another pitch could be thrown he was taken out.
Bennett has taken over regular catching duties for St. Louis since Yadier Molina broke his left wrist last week. Kelly Stinnett, signed on Sunday, ran for Bennett and then replaced him in the field in the third.
