Watch Pirates' Starling Marte, Erik Gonzalez collide violently vs. Giants


There was a really scary moment in the top of the eighth inning between the Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Giants infielder Yangervis Solarte popped a ball up behind second base. Pirates center fielder Starling Marte and shortstop Erik Gonzalez converged on the ball and collided violently in center field.

Both players stayed down for several minutes. The Pirates' trainer raced out to check on both players and had to keep switching between Marte and Gonzalez since both were in considerable pain.

Gonzalez was able to walk off on his own power, but a cart was brought out to take Marte to the clubhouse.

The Pirates have yet to release an injury update on the players, but let's hope both players didn't suffer any type of serious injury.
