ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw left Saturday night’s game in the second inning after being struck on the side of his face by a thrown ball as he attempted a stolen base.
Shaw walked off the field under his own power after lying on the ground for several seconds and being helped by trainers. Hernan Perez ran for Shaw and replaced him at third base.
Shaw led off the second inning with a single off Alex Cobb of the Tampa Bay Rays. With two outs and Eric Sogard batting, Shaw stole second base. The throw from catcher Jesus Sucre hit Shaw in the left side of the head just before shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria could reach it.
