A regular season MLB clash between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers was horrifically interrupted in the second inning on Wednesday.

First year Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon took a line drive to the back of his head, which then deflected all the way to the outfield for a Hernan Perez single.

Statcast registered that the ball traveled at a speed of 169 km/h off Perez' bat. Taillon fell to the ground grabbing at the back of his head as a result and trainers rushed out to the mound immediately.

However, the hit couldn't keep Taillon out of the game as he played on through six innings.

It didn't appear that any concussion tests were administered on Taillon after the incident.
