Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez hit in helmet by errant throw from Brewers catcher Victor Caratini
New York Yankees’ Marwin Gonzalez left early on Saturday afternoon after he was hit in the head in the batter's box by a throw from Milwaukee Brewers catcher Victor Caratini. Gonzalez had taken a strike in the third inning of their game at American Family Field, and was standing in the box waiting as Caratini went to throw the ball back to pitcher Brandon Woodruff. Caratini’s throw, however, drilled Gonzalez right in his helmet — which sent the helmet to the ground and Gonzalez stumbling back. The Brewers scored three runs in the bottom of that third inning after Willy Adames hit a deep shot off Jameson Taillon over the left field wall. The Brewers have won seven of their last nine games, including two over the Yankees.wftv.com
