Diamondbacks' Iannetta hit in face with pitch, walks off

He had homered off Pittsburgh starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow back in the third inning, before being replaced by Chris Herrmann in the seventh. The Pirates are 4-2 in his six starts this season. The D-backs won their second straight in the series and third in a row overall.

Chris Iannetta fell in pain, his nose bleeding profusely after getting hit in the nose by a pitch Friday night. They hit for the cycle in the inning. Over his 27.0 innings and 1-2 record this year, Glasnow has a 6.33 ERA and 28 Ks.

The 34-year-old Iannetta has played for four Major League Baseball teams during his pro career that began in 2006.

- TheRenderMLB (@TheRenderMLB) May 13, 2017Chris Iannetta is now at a local hospital receiving treatment after he was hit in the face with a fastball tonight. Entering Friday's game, only Martin Prado, Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Johnson had a higher batting average than Harrison against lefties since the start of the 2013 season.

Lovullo stared silently for several moments when asked, if given the history between the clubs, whether this was a matter still to be finished. He allowed three runs, struck out six and walked two in 6 1/3 innings.

He is 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA in three career starts against the Pirates.


Hitting a ball off the batter's eye in straightaway center field takes some doing.

Iannetta was struck by a 93 miles per hour pitch from Pittsburgh reliever Johnny Barbato in the seventh inning Friday night. Patrick Corbin pitched six innings for the win to improve to 3-4, allowing four runs on six hits.

Hopefully this doesn't keep him off the field long. In the third and fourth he drove in runs, giving him 26 RBI on the season, second-best on the team. He has 16 complete games to his name, most recently an eight-inning complete game in a 2-1 loss to the Padres on April 19. Gregory Polanco, who accounted for the lone hit and run scored the night before, dropped a ball in shallow left field for an RBI double. He's appeared in over 100 games in a year on just four occasions, having spent each of the last three years with a different club.

Following the Polanco plate appearance, Corbin retired nine of 10 batters before a two-out walk to Jose Osuna. In that inning alone he gave up two singles, a walk, a double, a triple and two home runs. Rougned Odor then singled through the left side of the infield to drive home Andrus with the tying run and bring Napoli to the plate.

"He is a veteran, he is well-liked, he's a leader", Lovullo said, "and he went down".
