In a scary scene in the Pittsburgh-Colorado game this afternoon at PNC Park, Pirates starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was carted off the field after being hit in the head in the second inning on an 0-2 pitch from Rockies starter Jordan Lyles.

As you saw in the clip, Vogelsong immediately hit the deck and was tended to by athletic trainer Todd Tomcyzk. Vogelsong would eventually sit up and leave on the aforementioned cart. No details on his condition have been released at the time of this writing.
