O's Nelson Cruz beaned but OK

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Baltimore Orioles designated hitter Nelson Cruz left Thursday night's game against Tampa Bay in the fourth inning after he was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Alex Cobb.

Cruz fell after being hit on the first pitch, but quickly got up. He immediately walked off the field after being attended to by team trainers.

The Orioles said he was fine after Cruz was taken to a local hospital for a precautionary CT scan.
