Nate Tomlinson, the referee for Tuesday’s game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Los Angeles Dodgers, left the field in the ninth inning after being hit in the face with shrapnel from Mike Trout’s broken racquet.
“In the mask, the broken part of the bat was really scary,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters. “I heard she hit his nose, Nate. And that’s, I think, the best case scenario. A very scary moment.”

Bob Nightingale USA TODAY More information reported Wednesday:
His departure came with one departure in Ras ninth. Crew Chief Laz Diaz moved from second base to the back of the board.
Trout recorded a bat-breaking song in the play as the Angels attempted to recover from a 2-0 delay. Shohei Ohtani followed him with a double and Matt Duffy walked to load the bases, but the Dodgers closer Craig Kimbrill hit Jared Walsh and Max Stacy to secure the win.
The Mookie Betts hit his 17th home run of the season with the Dodgers, while starting bowler Tony Gonsolin threw 6.1 goalless innings to improve his record to 8-0.
“I felt good,” Gonsulin He said. “I definitely wanted to stay there. When it’s my day to give shows, I have to do my best.”
The Los Angeles teams are wrapping up a series of two games Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium.
In a typical rotation, Tomlinson would be the third base referee if available.
