New York Mets outfielder Kevin Pillar was left with a bloody face during a scary scene last night in Atlanta in a game against the Braves.

Facing a 1-2 count with the bases loaded in the top of the 7th, Pillar was struck in the face by a fastball that got away from Atlanta pitcher Jacob Webb.

Webb clearly didn't mean to hit Pillar, as the game was paused for several minutes in as the grounds crew had to clean blood up off the field.

On a positive note, Pillar walked off on his own accord and shared the following message on Twitter last night.

New York went on to defeat Atlanta 3-1.
