Jeff Francoeur loses his bat, nearly hits pitcher

BY Nick Schwartz • May 9, 2016

Atlanta Braves left fielder Jeff Francoeur lost his grip on his bat while swinging at a low Patrick Corbin breaking ball in the sixth inning of Sunday's Braves-Diamondbacks game, and Corbin was just a few feet away from being struck by a spinning piece of wood. 

Francoeur made contact with the ball and fouled it off to the backstop, but his bat went flying towards second base and zoomed past Corbin.
