In the bottom of the sixth inning, with the score tied 3-3, Gardner grounded the ball back to Rays pitcher Xavier Cedeno. He tossed the it towards first base, where Weeks tried to dig the throw out of the dirt, but couldn’t. As the ball bounced away, Gardner collided with him and both men stayed down for an extended period of time.
Ouch. Here are some other angles:

Here’s hoping both guys are OK.
