Humber struck in forehead; leaves game

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

White Sox right-hander Philip Humber was struck above the right eye with a ball off the bat of Kosuke Fukudome in the second inning of the Cleveland Indians' 4-2 win on Thursday night and was forced to leave the game.

Humber appeared to be OK, walking off on his own power. He was removed for precautionary reasons, and was alert and responsive. He will be evaluated on Friday.

Humber was replaced by Zach Stewart. The Sox led 1-0 on Paul Konerko's 28th homer in the third inning but Cleveland came back to win for the second straight night after the Sox won the first game of the series.
