BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox pitcher Tanner Houck left Friday’s game with the Yankees after being hit in the face with a line drive.

With Boston leading 10-1 in the fifth inning, New York’s Kyle Higashioka started and trailed 1-2 in the count, before lining up Houck’s lead at 92 mph straight down the middle and hitting Houck.

Houck immediately lay down on the ground and lay there for a few minutes as he was treated by athletic trainers. The right side of his face was bleeding, but he was able to get up and leave the field under his own power.

The team announced his injury as a facial contusion.

Houck covered his cheek with a towel and raised his left fist towards the crowd as he descended the steps into the dugout. Houck was replaced by Joe Jacques.

Houck allowed one run and four hits, with two strikeouts and a walk.
