Omar Infante leaves game after taking pitch to jaw (VIDEO)

There was a scary moment in Kansas City Monday night, as Royals second baseman Omar Infante was hit in the face by a pitch from Rays right-hander Heath Bell in the bottom of the seventh inning.

After the game, Bell expressed concern over his former teammate's injury:
