TORONTO - It's an image Cleveland Indians fans will probably never forget — blood dripping from the finger of Trevor Bauer as he pitched the first inning of American League Championship Series Game 3.
Yeah we all saw that.
What we didn't see was manager Terry Francona's tooth fall out.
"Right before the game, I mean, like literally, my lower tooth, the veneer popped out while I was chewing," Francona told MLB.com reporter Jordan Bastian. "That thing came off and I'm chewing and I felt it crunchy. I was like 'uh oh.' So I undid my tobacco and there's my tooth."
But don't worry. It's all good now.
"They found me a dentist last night," he said. "I went from here to a dentist last night at 1 o'clock in the morning. Some dentist met me downtown and [expletive] put it back in. How about that? That's unbelievable. I'm good to go."
Not only did Bauer's pinkie begin bleeding in the first inning in Game 3, Indians manager Terry Francona lost a tooth. The story from Tito: pic.twitter.com/Dm144vREqC— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) October 18, 2016
