One of Pirates best players has to leave after hit-by-pitch

The team from Pittsburgh could be in trouble if he has to miss time

Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Josh Harrison has left his team’s game at Miami after being hit on the left arm by a 96-mph fastball from Jose Urena.

Harrison appeared to be hit on the protective guard covering his elbow. He walked slowly to first base, but after consulting with a trainer he left the game.

The Pirates’ leadoff hitter, Harrison is batting .263 with one homer and five RBIs. He came into the game Sunday leading the team with 12 runs.
