Boston Red Sox star and Arizona State alum Dustin Pedroia left Monday's game against the Baltimore Orioles with a nasal contusion after hitting a ball that bounced off home plate and hit him in the face.

The scary moment happened in the fourth inning. Pedroia cleaned blood off his face with a towel as he left the game, according to ESPN.

Pedroia is a four-time All-Star and was the 2008 American League Most Valuable Player. The Red Sox said he is day-to-day.
