Padres lose pitcher Young, catcher Bard to injuries
Pujols hit a line drive off his Young's face in the third inning, breaking the right-hander's nose. Young immediately fell on his backside and put his right hand up to his face. Blood was running down his face.
After a few minutes of sitting on the grass, Young walked off holding a bandage on his face with blood on the front of his jersey.
Young was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Pujols' shot ricocheted to the left side of the infield for a single and loaded the bases with one out. After Ryan Ludwick's grounder knocked in one run and advanced the runners, Troy Glaus lined a single to right field.
Bard went down in a heap and stayed on the ground for a few minutes before he was helped off the field, dragging his left leg. The Padres said Bard sprained his left ankle.
