Brewers shortstop Willy Adames was hit with a line drive foul ball during Friday's game. After the game, Craig Counsell gave a good update.

The injury to Willy Adames left a cloud hanging over Friday night’s game between the San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers from the bottom of the second inning through the end of the game. After the game, we got an update on the condition of the Brewers shortstop.

While sitting in Milwaukee’s dugout in the bottom of the second inning, Adames was struck by a line drive foul ball off the bat of his teammate, Brian Anderson. The game was delayed for a few minutes while Adames was attended to in the dugout. Eventually, Adames got up and into the clubhouse, later being taken to the hospital.

After the game, Milwaukee manager, Craig Counsell provided an update. Counsell said (per Adam McCalvy, that Adames “was alert and responsive the whole time.”

McCalvy also reported that Adames “will remain hospitalized overnight.” He added that there were “no fractures and that Adames will go on the injured list on Saturday.

Baseball fans were relieved at the relatively positive news and continued to send Adames their best wishes.

The injury had a clear impact on the entire game, particularly the Brewers. At the time of the injury, the Giants were leading 3-1. In the top of the third, San Francisco blew the game open, scoring seven runs with Milwaukee committing two errors in the inning.
