Indian's top prospect Matt LaPorta was hit in the head with a pitch in the Olympic baseball game between the USA and China, one of five American hitters hit with pitches in a 9-1 American victory that degenerated into a near-brawl. LaPorta was taken to a hospital to be treated for what was described as a mild concussion, and several participants were ejected from the game. MSNBC video at this HuffPo link. More here.
