Jose Fernandez hits David Peralta in head; D-backs retaliate (VIDEO)

There was a scary moment during Wednesday night's Marlins-Diamondbacks game after a pitch got away from Jose Fernandez and struck Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta square on the helmet. 

Peralta, who was later reported to be OK, got laid out on the frightening — but seemingly unintentional — pitch to the head.

The Diamondbacks, meanwhile, didn’t take the incident lying down, and soon retaliated when Dominic Leone purposely hit the Marlins' Christian Yelich on the leg.

The D-Backs later reported, to great relief, that Peralta wasn't seriously injured.
Things could have turned ugly in more ways than one. Thankfully, clearer heads prevailed after Leone's silly plunking.
