Watch: Pirates Pitcher Gerrit Cole Narrowly Escapes Line Drive to the Head

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole came within inches of serious injury Thursday against the Detroit Tigers.

In the sixth inning, Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann sharply lined a Cole pitch directly back from where it came, grazing the top of Cole’s hat and knocking it off.

The pitcher came out unscathed and continued to pitch after being a little spooked by the close call.

The Tigers went on to win 7-4.
