Reds' Cozart beaned by Billingsley, leaves game
LOS ANGELES (AP)
Billingsley retired the first two batters in the inning before hitting Cozart with his next pitch. Cozart held his head with both hands while lying on his stomach for several anxious moments and a trainer came out to examine him. Wilson Valdez ran for Cozart and took his place in the field.
Cozart, who had two of Cincinnati's four hits at the time of the beaning, is batting .250 in 75 games with 16 RBIs and eight home runs. Billingsley has hit five batters, the most on the Los Angeles staff.
