FORT TRAFFICJAMBURG, Fla. -- Scary scene here minutes ago, when Torii Hunter was drilled squarely in the head by a Kyle Lohse pitch with two outs in the first inning of the Twins-Reds game at Hammond Stadium.

After lying flat on his back for over a minute, Torii walked off the field to a standing ovation. I'll pass along an injury update when I get one.

Lohse still is the same lousy pitcher he was while with the Twins, but that wasn't intentional. I've heard he's actually hung out with Torii this spring. As the trainers tended to Torii, Gardy talked to Lohse and patted him on the back three times. Nice gesture from Gardy, especially after all the grief Lohse gave him the past two years.

Lohse got the hook after that. Typical line: 1 run, 1 hit, 2 walks, 1 hit batter

UPDATE: Turns out Lohse left because of a mild strain in his right hamstring.
