Diamondbacks catcher Iannetta takes pitch to face

Pirates vs Diamondbacks Live Stream: Watch MLB Online, Team News

During the bottom of the seventh inning of the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday night game with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Diamonbacks catcher Chris Iannetta was hit in the face with a 93 mile per hour fastball while he was batting. On Saturday, the team will have more of an update on the status of Iannetta.

"He was up walking around".

"His slider's been very good with late action in the hitting zone", Lovullo said. "So, we're taking every precaution possible to make sure he is OK".

Greinke took a no-no into the eighth inning, with just six outs left, for the Arizona Diamondbacks at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Iannetta fell to the ground immediately and eventually walked off the field with towel over his nose.

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta has several stitches in his lip, plus a couple of fractured teeth and a broken nose after getting hit in the face by a fastball. In the ninth inning, Arizona reliever Tom Wilhelmsen hit Pittsburgh's Chris Stewart in the leg, but Stewart simply went to first base.




"I think the pitch just got away from their pitcher, and I'll stand by that", Lovullo said. Over his 27.0 innings and 1-2 record this year, Glasnow has a 6.33 ERA and 28 Ks. Only one batter has reached base for the Pirates on Thursday night. For Iannetta, it was his third homer of the season and his first in 11 games (April 18 at San Diego).

Goldschmidt suffered a broken wrist when he was struck by a pitch from Ernesto Frieri on August 1, 2014, and the D-Backs got McCutchen in the back in the ninth inning the next day, forcing him onto the disabled list. His best so far came against the Brewers where he allowed just one run with a single homer throwing over 7 innings.

Arizona's David Peralta doubled twice and made a diving grab in right field to rob Andrew McCutchen in the first inning. Godley was being considered for the fifth spot in the rotation and earned at least another look with his most recent start, a four-hitter through seven innings in which he beat Detroit, 7-1.

Arizona hit 10 strikeouts exactly in its home win over the Tigers on Wednesday, with Zack Godley striking out six in seven innings of work and Randall Delgado striking out two over his two innings.

The last time the Pirates were no-hit was by Max Scherzer on June 20, 2015.

Only one ball off a Pittsburgh bat reached the outfield through six innings.
