PHOENIX (AP) - Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley was hit in the face by a line drive but walked off the field and gave a thumbs up to the crowd, apparently avoiding serious injury during Arizona's 12-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
Mark Trumbo went 4 for 4 with a two-run homer and a two-run triple to lead the Diamondbacks, who ended a four-game skid after a frightening scene early on.
Bradley was struck on the right side of his face by a liner off the bat of slugger Carlos Gonzalez in the second inning. The 22-year-old rookie lay virtually motionless on the mound for several minutes as trainers attended to him and anguished teammates squatted nearby.
Eventually he was rolled over and helped to his feet.
