Pirates’ Cervelli hit in jaw by foul, exits against Cubs
Cervelli was struck during the third inning. He initially stayed in after manager Clint Hurdle and trainer Bryan Housand came out to check on him following Heyward’s groundout.
Cervelli grounded out in the fourth before being removed for precautionary reasons in the bottom half. Elias Diaz replaced him behind the plate.
