Video: Max Fried smacks his head on ground after making throw

Max Fried on the ground

Max Fried gave Atlanta Braves fans a scare on Saturday night when he faceplanted into the turf at Citi Field.

Fried was pitching for the Braves against the Mets, and New York had the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the third. Darin Ruf hit a grounder to first baseman Matt Olson, who threw to second in hopes of a 3-6-1 double play. They got the force at second, but they weren’t able to turn the double play at first due to a bounced throw.

Fried went to get the errant throw and tried to pick it up and throw to home, but he faceplanted in the process.

Here is the full play:

And here you can see how Fried hit his head on the ground:

Fried stayed in the game, though the Mets scored two runs on the play to go up 3-0. The southpaw got the next batter out to end the inning and also went 1-2-3 in the fourth.
