Miami’s Miguel Rojas, 33, suffered a broken front tooth during defense.
On the 15th (Korea Standard Time), the game between Miami and Pittsburgh was held at Rondipo Park in Miami, Florida, where O’Neill Cruz (24) walked out after one out in the top of the ninth inning when Pittsburgh faced 1-1. During Mike Perez’s at-bat, Cruise attempted to steal second base. Miami catcher Nick Portes immediately pitched to second base, and shortstop Rojas, who received the ball, tagged out Cruz.
In the process, Cruise slid from the leg to the second base and stood up, and his helmet’s front head hit the lower part of Rojas’ face strongly. Rojas, who broke his front tooth in the collision, immediately went into the dugout with his hand covering his mouth and missed the game.
