Injury Scout - Everitt Leaves Giants Game

HP Umpire Mike Everitt exited Saturday's Cardinals-Giants game in San Francisco following a head injury in the 6th inning.

With two out and none on in the top of the 6th, Cardinals batter Tyler O'Neill fouled a 0-1 97-mph fastball from Giants pitcher Reyes Moronta into the jaw portion of Everitt's traditional-style facemask.

2B Umpire Lance Barrett replaced Everitt behind home plate with 1B Umpire Roberto Ortiz and 3B Umpire/Acting Crew Chief Alfonso Marquez remaining on the field for the rest of the evening. Everitt's crew recently lost Bill Welke due to a head injury on June 30.
