Angels LF Cowgill hit in face when trying to bunt

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Los Angeles Angels left fielder Collin Cowgill was struck in the face by a ball after he squared to bunt in Saturday night's game at Texas.

Blood was pouring from the bridge of Cowgill's nose after being struck in the eighth inning. He immediately put his hand over his face and started walking toward the Angels dugout.

The Angels said Cowgill got stitches on his nose and was then taken to a hospital for further evaluation.

The pitch by Matt West went over the bat and appeared to hit Cowgill flush on the face. It wasn't clear if the ball tipped off the bat before hitting Cowgill.

Efren Navarro finished the at-bat for Cowgill and drew a walk.
