Injury - Dana DeMuth Leaves Cards Game on Foul Ball

Dana DeMuth was injured by a foul ball during the Pirates-Cardinals game in St. Louis Saturday afternoon. DeMuth was struck by a first-inning foul ball off the bat of Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty, leaving the game two innings later pursuant to MLB's protocol for head injuries.

Piscotty fouled off a 2-2 fastball from Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke directly into the center-face portion of DeMuth's traditional-style facemask, knocking the mask off the umpire's head.

Crewmate Ed Hickox replaced DeMuth behind the plate, vacating his second base position while Greg Gibson (1B) and Mike Estabrook (3B) remained in the field as the crew worked shorthanded.
