Braves outfielder Jason Heyward hit in face with pitch

There was a scary situation at Citi Field today after Jonathon Niese of the Mets hit Braves outfielder Jason Heyward in the jaw with a pitch. Heyward would eventually leave the field with some assistance, spitting up some blood on the way to the dugout. There was no immediate word on his condition, though he was expected to head to a local hospital for x-rays.
