Pirates Evan Meek Line Drived By Braun, Exits Game

The Pittsburgh Pirates All-Star relief pitcher Evan Meek was line drived by Ryan Braun in the bottom of the eighth.  Meek immediately fell to his back after it appeared he took a direct hit to his pitching hand.  Meek had raised his hand and glove to attempt to catch the liner that was scorched by Braun.  Meek had to exit the game and x-rays have been taken. 

 UPDATE with video of Meek:  x-rays were negative on the back of Meeks hand near the fingers.
