Arizona's Chris Iannetta Hit in the Mouth With a Fastball

Chris Iannetta of the Arizona Diamondbacks was hit in the face with a pitch on Friday night. Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Johnny Barbato lost control of a 93mph fastball that hit Iannetta right in the mouth during the 7th inning of the Diamondbacks 11-4 win.

Iannetta left the game under his own power and may have escaped with just a split lip. It was a scary moment, but assuming he’s fine it’s probably OK to marvel at this incredible picture of the moment of impact.
