[7/18/2017] Kenya Wakatsuki hit in the head by a pitch

Yuki Karakawa hit Kenya Wakatsuki in the head with a pitch during tonight’s game against the Orix Buffaloes at ZOZO Marine Stadium. He was immediately ejected for throwing a dangerous pitch.

The incident took place in the third inning with no one on base and two out. Karakawa threw an 0-1 fastball that struck Wakatsuki in the head. The twenty-one-year-old catcher could not stand up (he was conscious) and had to be taken off the field on a stretcher. He was taken to a hospital in Narashino, Chiba for tests.
