Jordany Valdespin, most recently best known for taking a 94 mph Justin Verlander fastball to the nether regions, took a another hard one in the face Wednesday night — and this time was all smiles after the hit.
The brash New York Mets centerfielder jacked a 10th-inning, walk-off grand slam to give his team a dramatic 7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers and save starter Matt Harvey from suffering his first loss of the season.
After Valdespin's Citi Field heroics, Mets slugger John Buck smashed his teammate in the face with a celebratory pie during the post game interview. It looked like the powerful Buck could have busted Valdespin's nose with the ungentle pie slam — even after he caught Buck sneaking up on him.
Next time, Valdespin might want to wear some protection down there and up top.
