Keiichii Hirano (HAN) was hit by a pitch in the head last night in the 7th inning (Jumpei Shinoda's fork).  He dropped to the ground and couldn't stand for a little while, but still stayed in the game.  Hirano told reporters that he may have actually blacked out temporarily since he couldn't really remember what happened.

There are no plans for Hirano to visit the hospital at this point as it appears that he's alright.
