ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba said he felt fine after getting hit in the head by Albert Pujols' broken bat in the first inning of Friday's game.

"I wanted to play, but they wanted to be sure," Torrealba said. "I feel great. I just went down. It was a hard hit."

Pujols broke his bat and part of it flew out toward Michael Young, who caught a soft liner in foul territory to retire Pujols in the first. But Pujols continued his swing and the rest of his bat knocked Torrealba on the side of the head. Torrealba said he didn't have a headache or anything after the game.
