Iannetta beaned, more bad blood as Dbacks top Pirates 11-4

Iannetta was struck by a 93 miles per hour pitch from Pittsburgh reliever Johnny Barbato in the seventh inning Friday night.

The Arizona Diamondbacks can clinch a four-game series with the struggling Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday after an 11-4 win on Friday night that gave them at least a split.

Barbato and Iannetta exchanged texts after the incident and the Diamondbacks catcher said there are no hard feelings between them. Iannetta immediately began pouring blood from his face and it was evident that his injuries were severe.

MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reported Iannetta was taken to the hospital after being hit by an errant pitch from Pirates right-hander Johnny Barbato.

Manager Torey Lovullo says Iannetta is "doing OK" a day after being struck Friday night by a 93 miles per hour pitch from Pittsburgh's Johnny Barbato.

When asked about it at his press conference, Lovullo paused, then told reporters he believes the pitch just "got away" from the pitcher.

“Were still trying to drill down to making sure everything is OK, ” Lovullo said.

"I feel good and I " m looking forward to keeping it rolling", Drury said.

Iannetta also went to the dentist on Saturday. The Diamondbacks have two other catchers — Chris Herrmann and Jeff Mathis.

“Theres a strategy to pitching in and theres a need for pitching in, ” Lovullo said, “and by no means do I think anybody tried to hit Chris Iannetta in the face yesterday. Walker's final line was four runs, three earned, over six innings on eight hits - he walked as many as he struck out, with three of each.

Pirates starter Tyler Glasnow (1-3) lasted just 2 2/3 innings, giving up seven runs on seven hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts. Drury has reached base in 17 of 18 home games this season and leads the National League with a.454 batting average at home.

Gregory Polanco, who accounted for the lone hit and run scored the night before, dropped a ball in shallow left field for an RBI double.

His home run highlighted a seven-run third inning. It hurts. It's part of the game that I don't enjoy whatsoever.

The Pirates made a pair of roster moves with the return of third baseman David Freese and utility player Adam Frazier from the disabled list.
