Houston Astros’ Colin Moran fouls ball off face, exits game


Houston Astros third baseman Colin Moran left Saturday night’s game against the Orioles in Baltimore after fouling a ball off his face.

Moran was injured in the sixth inning when he fouled an inside pitch from Orioles reliever Darren O’Day straight up and into the left side of his face.

Moran went down to the ground and grabbed his face, which had started to bleed. After a lengthy time down on the field with athletic trainers — including a brief moment where he attempted to stand up but couldn’t — he was carted off the field.

The 24-year-old was playing in only his second career major league game after being called up Tuesday to replace injured shortstop Carlos Correa.

Moran was 1-for-2 Saturday and was replaced in the at-bat by Marwin Gonzalez, who proceeded to launch a three-run home run off O’Day to give the Astros a 6-4 lead.
