The Texas Rangers fell 2-1 to the Boston Red Sox after a ninth inning snafu by Rangers closer Joe Nathan. The game was tied 1-1, when Joe Nathan walked two in the top of the ninth before Mike Aviles came to the plate. Aviles belted a single over the head of a leaping Elvis Andrus to win the game for the Red Sox.

The biggest storyline coming out of the game however was the injury to Adrian Beltre. In the bottom of the eighth, the game tied 1-1, Beltre was at the plate when suddenly Vincente Padilla unleashed a head high pitch striking Beltre in the head, forcing him to leave the game.

Beltre, who is known to be sensitive about people touching his head handled things fairly well by being…well…nearly unconscious. Check out the video below. In the interest of time, fast forward the video to about the :44 second mark.
