Phillies right fielder Nick Williams left Monday's game against the Cardinals in the eighth inning when he was on the receiving end of one of the more unfortunate outfield ricochets we'll see.

When Matt Carpenter drove a deep fly ball off the right-field wall, Williams gave chase before stopping short of the fence. At the same time, though, the ball deflected high off the wall and caromed right to Williams' nose.

Williams stayed with the play and threw the ball back into the infield.

But seconds later, he would call for the trainers. His nose was bleeding … a lot.

The Phillies broadcast provided sound effects, for some reason.

Aaron Altherr would replace Williams.
