Matt Moore Hit In Face With Line Drive, Will Have X-Rays Monday

Matt Moore [1] believes he’ll be o.k. after exiting this afternoon’s contest against the Boston Red Sox after getting struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of at of Xander Bogaerts [2].


After the game Moore told reporters that the line drive hit him right on mouth and he wasn’t sure if he deflected. He feels extremely lucky to leave with just a fat lip and stitches and that it was fortunate it happened on a Sunday, the Lord’s day.

He will get more X-rays Monday to see if jaw or roots of his teeth are fractured
