Eduardo Nunez loses bat, hits umpire in mask (Video)

Minnesota Twins shortstop Eduardo Nunez accidentally hit home plate umpire Gabe Morales in the mask with his bat after losing his grip on it during the eighth inning of Wednesday night's game in Seattle.

Nunez lost the grip of his bat on the follow-through after fouling off a 2-2 pitch, and Morales was very fortunate that his face was protected or he could have been seriously injured. Instead, Morales was able to shake it off and continue serving his duties behind the plate.
