O’s Reimold hit in head by pitch from Rays’ Cobb

Baltimore Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold was taken to a

hospital after he was hit in the left side of the head by a

fastball from Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb in the first inning

of a 3-3, 10-inning tie on Friday.

Reimold, batting fifth in the lineup, immediately dropped to the

ground and was face-down for several minutes while a hushed crowd

watched nervously as Orioles trainers tended him.

Also looking on was a visibly upset Cobb, who said in the Rays

clubhouse, ”It’s probably the worst feeling you can have as a

pitcher.”

Reimold eventually walked to a cart, which took him off the

field.

Cobb pitched three scoreless innings, giving up two hits and two

walks in his first start of the spring.
