ATLANTA (AP) – The emerging James McCann broke a scoreless tie with a seventh-inning double, Tomás Nido had three hits and the New York Mets overcame injuries to beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Monday night. With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Mets outfielder Kevin Pillar was drilled square in the nose by a 95 mph pitch from Jacob Webb, leading to a run to the plate. Pillar fell to the ground with blood pouring from his nose.

Some Braves players, including Webb, were shocked at the grotesque image. Pillar was able to walk off the pitch, covering his face with towels. Members of the grounds crew worked to cover up blood left in the batter’s box area as the Braves made a pitching change. The New York Mets did not immediately report on Pillar’s status.
