In the top of the fifth inning in Tampa Bay, Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer hit an absolute rocket of a line drive right back at the pitcher's mound. And unfortunately, it hit Rays starter Alex Cobb square in the head. It appeared to get him above the right ear on the side of his head.

The ball ricocheted off Cobb's head all the way back to the home-plate area, so it was by no means a glancing blow. It was ugly.

Cobb immediately fell to the ground, nearly motionless, save for some leg movement. Doctors and athletic trainers immediately signaled for the stretcher and Cobb is certainly headed to the hospital.
