The Arizona Diamondbacks nearly lost more than the game on Wednesday when reliever David Hernandez was hit by a comebacker.
In a relief appearance in the sixth inning of the D-backs' 7-6 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies at Chase Field on Wednesday, Hernandez was struck by a line drive from Andres Blanco on his ankle.
The 30-year-old right-hander threw warm-up pitches after the incident but was unable to carry on and was forced to leave the game.

However, manager Chip Hale had good news about Hernandez after the game.
"They X-rayed it. [There was] no break. It's just a bruise," Hale said of Hernandez's ankle. "He was moving around on it real good in the training room. I went in to see him. He was getting it iced. Hopefully with the day off [on Thursday], he'll be OK on Friday. If we have to give him a day or two, that's OK."
