SAN DIEGO (AP) — Home plate umpire Larry Vanover left the Giants-Padres game Tuesday night after being struck in the face mask by a foul tip.
Vanover staggered when struck by the ball off Brandon Crawford's bat in the eighth inning. After being examined by the Padres medical staff, Vanover left the field and was replaced by second base umpire David Rackley after an 8-minute delay.
