An incredibly scary moment at the end of the Dodgers-Angels game last night at the Ravine.

Nate Tomlinson, the home plate umpire for Tuesday's game between the Los Angeles Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers, left the field in the ninth inning after being struck in the face by a shard from Mike Trout's broken bat.

"In the mask, the broken part of the bat, that was really scary," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters. "I heard that it hit his nose, Nate. And so that's, I guess, the best-case scenario. A very scary moment."

Trout recorded a broken-bat single on the play as the Angels tried to rally from a 2-0 deficit but the Dodgers closer Craig Kimbrel struck out Jared Walsh and Max Stassi to secure the win.
