Kiyota was most likely upset and frustrated because this was his second pitch to the head this month and he only recently made it back to the active roster on September 15. He was able to walk off the field on his own and was taken to a hospital in Chiba for tests where he was diagnosed with a bruise on the left side of his head.

[UPDATE 9/22 @ 3:37pm]

Lotte decided to leave Kiyota on the active roster for the time being. He never lost consciousness and was diagnosed with a bruise. He is considered day-to-day.

Ikuhiro Kiyota was hit in the head by a pitch during a game against the Seibu Lions at Seibu Prince Dome on September 8. He was taken off the active roster on the following day because there were concerns he suffered a concussion.
