The Braves' Charlie Culberson is carted off the field, alert after getting hit directly in the face below the eye by a Fernando Rodney pitch. Culberson had squared to bunt as the ball soared over the top of his bat. Braves manager Brian Snitker has been ejected after the umpires ruled the pitch a strike, saying Culberson had offered at the pitch (he didn't jab the ball, but also didn't move his bat from the bunting position).
