CHICAGO — In a game that saw Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez go down in pain after getting drilled just above the kneecap with a pitch, Cubs catcher Willson Contreras was plunked in the head by a pitch. In the bottom of the seventh on Monday, Contreras was beaned by Milwaukee Brewers reliever Devin Williams.

Just one inning earlier at Wrigley Field, Baez was hit by a pitch. Thankfully, like Baez, Contreras was able to walk the HBP off and remain in the game. However, a 93-mph fastball impacting his batting helmet made for a scary scene, as the helmet flew off. Contreras took his base, though, and appeared to be OK after trainers evaluated him.
