Diamondbacks lefty Robbie Ray was struck on the head by a line drive in the second inning on Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals and left the game.

Ray’s first pitch to the Cardinals’ Luke Voit was lined back through the middle. Ray turned away and the ball struck him off the left side of the head. Ray immediately went down, covering his head with his hands.

Voit’s line drive left his bat at 108 mph, according to Statcast data.

The Diamondbacks’ training staff and manager Torey Lovullo rushed onto the field. After a few moments, Ray sat up on the mound. Within a few minutes, he sat on a cart and was drive off the field with a towel covering his head. There appeared to be blood on his hand.

Voit’s line drive ricocheted into foul territory, where third baseman Daniel Descalso made a diving catch.

Ray was replaced by reliever T.J. McFarland.
