Umpire Dale Scott sustains concussion

TORONTO (AP) — Plate umpire Dale Scott sustained a concussion when he was hit in the mask by a foul tip during a game between Baltimore and Toronto on Friday night.

Scott left the field on a spinal board in the eighth inning after being struck by a foul from Orioles slugger Mark Trumbo. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.

The Blue Jays relayed information from Major League Baseball that Scott would miss the rest of the series.

The game resumed with second base umpire Brian Knight working behind home plate.
