Giants left fielder, Nori Aoki, exited Sunday's game vs. the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field after being hit by a pitch in the helmet.
In the top of the third inning, Aoki was facing Jake Arrieta when his 0-1 pitch sailed high and smacked him on the right side of his helmet. Aoki attempted to get out of the way and was still beaned, though his attempt may have caused the pitch to not hit him square in the face.
Aoki went straight to the ground after being hit and was quickly assisted by a Giants trainer and his personal translator, Kosuke Inaji. He then got back on his feet on his own before heading back to the dugout.
Angel Pagan pinch-ran for Aoki and replaced him at the lead-off spot in the lineup.
To start the game, Pagan was benched for Gregor Blanco, but with Pagan entering the game, Blanco moved to left field in place of Aoki and Pagan went to his usual spot in center field.
In his first at-bat, Aoki popped out to Cubs shortstop Addison Russell.
On the season, Aoki is hitting .304/.370/.389 with four home runs and 12 stolen bases for the Giants.
