Mets’ Eric Young Jr. Crushes Ankle of Braves Pitcher Tim Hudson

Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson suffered a gruesome injury on Wednesday night and was carried off the field during a game against the New York Mets.

In the second half of the eighth inning, Mets batter Eric Young Jr. hit a ground ball to Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman. Young raced to first base to beat the throw, but stepped on Hudson’s ankle on the base. Hudson made the catch, but fell to the ground wincing in pain.

Hudson suffered a right ankle fracture and will undergo surgery in Atlanta when the swelling subsides.
