Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer left the field in Game 2 of the series against the Seattle Mariners after a collision.
The Jays led 9-6 in the eighth inning, and Jordan Romano tried to get out of a dangerous situation with the bases loaded. It was just one short, but JP Crawford lofted the ball to center field.
However, the ball landed right in front of Springer who, as he jumped to grab it, made contact with his teammate Bo Bichette who was also looking to grab the ball, on his side with his back to home plate.
Bichette’s right hand hit the outfielder’s head and left both Jays players on the ground, and the Mariners took advantage of the opportunity to score three runs to tie the game at 9-9. Bichette got up first, but Springer needed help from a trainer before being carted off the field.
“I haven’t had a chance to look at the video yet, but I think Bo’s elbow hit George’s shoulder or head,” Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider said. I’m not entirely sure. At this point, you’re still trying to focus on the rest of the game. »
Springer also appeared to injure his hand in the bottom of the fourth inning when he grabbed Mitch Haniger’s fly ball against the fence for the third out.
The Jays led 8-1 in that game, which is still ongoing. Seattle ended up winning 10-9 to eliminate Toronto.
