Yankees pitcher bloodied, carted off after taking 100 mph line drive off head

There was a scary moment at PNC Park Friday night when a pitcher was carted off the field after taking a line drive to the face.

New York Yankees pitcher Anthony Misiewicz left the game bloodied after taking a direct hit on a 100-plus mph line drive off the bat of Ji Hwan Bae in the bottom of the sixth inning on a 1-2 count with two outs in the inning.

The ball ricocheted so hard it wound up being a two-hopper to right fielder Aaron Judge.
