Brandon McCarthy hit in head by Erick Aybar line drive (Video)

There was a scary moment in the fourth inning of the Angels-A’s game in Oakland on Wednesday when pitcher Brandon McCarthy was hit in the head by a line drive.

McCarthy threw Erick Aybar a 3-1 fastball that the shortstop tagged on a line. McCarthy tried turning to his left to avoid the liner, but he got clocked on the right side of his head.

McCarthy went down immediately and sat on the mound looking dazed. He was alert enough to move his arms and rub his head, and he’s lucky he was able to walk off the field.

There are no updates yet on his condition.

McCarthy is having another strong season for the A’s. He entered the game leading the team’s starters with a 3.10 ERA, and he had allowed three runs over 3.2 innings on Wednesday.
