Twins line drive hits Yankees pitcher in face

There was a scary moment in the 2nd inning of Monday night's Twins-Yankees game when Eduardo Nunez hit a line drive back at the face of Yankees pitcher Bryan Mitchell.

Mitchell fell to the mound bleeding and left the game with what was later diagnosed as a nasal fracture.

The Yankees beat the Twins 8-7 in 10 innings when Nunez bobbled a Chase Headley ground ball, allowing Greg Bird the score the winning run.
