Injury - David Rackley Knocked Out on Foul to Groin

Umpire David Rackley was injured on a foul ball to the groin, leaving Sunday's Dodgers-Padres in the 5th inning of what would later become a marathon 17-inning affair.

With none out and none on in the top of the 5th inning, Dodgers batter Joc Pederson bunted a 91-mph fastball from Padres pitcher Colin Rea behind home plate, whereupon the ball struck Rackley in the lower groin.

Umpires Larry Vanover (1B), Alfonso Marquez (2B), and Chris Guccione (3B) officiated the remainder of the 5-hour, 47-minute contest in a three-person alignment, Vanover and Guccione manning the bases as Marquez served as home plate umpire for the game's remaining 12 innings.

Rackley will be reevaluated before the Vanover crew's next game on Tuesday.
