The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE (AP) Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton was hit under the left eye by a fastball and bleeding from the face as he was taken off the field in an ambulance Thursday night in a 4-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Marlins said the major league RBI leader was being treated at a hospital for a facial cut. He was also undergoing X-rays and a CT scan.
It was ruled that Stanton swung at the pitch from Mike Fiers. Reed Johnson batted for Stanton and was hit in the hand by Fiers' next pitch, triggering a bench-clearing brawl.
