Nationals’ Alcides Escobar received hit sq. within the beans on a pick-off throw


Shedding by 5 runs to the Pittsburgh Pirates is dangerous sufficient, however Thursday was an particularly dangerous night time for Alcides Escobar. The infielder was taking a lead off first base within the high of the fourth, when J.T. Brubaker tried to choose him off. That’s when issues went flawed.

It’s troublesome to seize the second that ball met crotch, even watching that is tremendous gradual movement. That’s a terrifying testomony to only how briskly Brubaker’s throw was. It seems now we have an ideal bean-bashing storm during which the pitcher threw barely huge to Escobar’s proper, and he stepped completely so the ball collided together with his proper testicular space, earlier than understandably collapsing in a heap.

We’re going to see a lot extra examples of gamers getting hit sq. within the beans this season, however this is among the earliest, and most soul-crushing examples. The Nationals went on to lose 9-5, and Escobar was 1-for-4, with no runs scored, and one groin flattened.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
