Kurt Suzuki left Wednesday night’s Game 5 of the NLDS between his Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers after being hit by a Walker Buehler pitch in the top of the seventh inning.

Buehler was trying to go up in the zone on a 1-2 pitch and ended up throwing inside on the Nats catcher. The ball hit Suzuki in his left hand/wrist first and then ricocheted toward his head/helmet.

Suzuki was down on the ground at Dodger Stadium and later was helped to his feet. He was clearly dazed as he headed toward the dugout and walked into the clubhouse.

The 36-year-old catcher was 0-for-1 with a walk in the game prior to exiting.
