'Big Sexy' Takes One To The Belly

SEATTLE (105.3 THE FAN) - Rangers pitcher Bartolo 'Big Sexy' Colon took a shot off the gut and still made the out! 

During the game against the Seattle Mariners on Wedensday, Rangers pitcher Bartolo Colon took a line drive to his belly.

The line drive off the bat of Seattle's Jean Segura was estimated at 101 mph. As much as Colon tried to get his glove up and shift his body, there was no way he could avoid being struck.

After Colon picked up the loose ball and threw Segura out at first base, he laughed as the Rangers staff rushed to check on him.

"The important thing is we won the game and I was able to get the out," Colon said through an interpreter. "He got me on the side. It was not in the middle. And I have a big belly so I can (handle) it."
