Child Hit By Flying Bat At Red Sox-Orioles Game

BOSTON (AP) — A child was carried from the stands behind the Red Sox dugout after being hit with Nick Punto's flying bat in the sixth inning of a game between Boston and the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday at Fenway Park.

Punto, batting left-handed with one out in the sixth, had the bat slip out of hands and fly about two rows behind the dugout, striking the child.

No immediate word was available about the injury.
