Marlins second baseman Derek Dietrich was struck by a ball while in the dugout and lifted from Sunday’s 7–3 win over the Braves.

During the ninth inning, Dietrich was hit near the head by a sharp grounder off the bat of Christian Yelich that entered the dugout and deflected off the wall. He fell to the ground, and lay face-down for a few minutes.

He eventually got up on his feet, went into the clubhouse and was replaced the following half-inning.

After the game, EMTs went to tend to Dietrich.

Dietrich finished a triple shy of the cycle in three at bats on the day. He extended his hitting streak to six games.
