TORONTO (AP) — Toronto Blue Jays center fielder George Springer was ejected from the field after colliding with shortstop Bo Bichette in the eighth inning of their playoff game against the Seattle Mariners Saturday.

With two outs and the bases loaded, JP Crawford hit a blooper in shallow center field. Springer and Bichette went hard after the ball, but it landed as the two collided. All three runners scored on the double, tying 9.

It looked like Bichette’s right arm had hit Springer in the forehead. Bichette got up fairly quickly and stayed in the game after being controlled by a trainer. A dazed Springer was helped to his feet as the cart was driven into the field.

Springer, 33, a four-time All-Star, cheered on the cheering crowd as the cart rolled off the field.

Seattle beat Toronto 4-0 in Game 1 of the best-of-three series on Friday.
