Brett Gardner exited tonight’s game against the Orioles after he was hit in the right wrist by a pitch, but Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports that X-rays came back negative.

Gardner was hit by a pitch from Wei-Yin Chen in the first inning and remained in the game until Stephen Drew came up as a pinch-hitter with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. It actually worked out great for the Yankees, as Drew hit a go-ahead grand slam off Tommy Hunter. The Yankees went on to win 6-5.

Fortunately for the Yankees, it sounds like Gardner dodged a bullet and should be back in action soon. The 31-year-old is batting .261/.393/.435 across his first six games this season.

Nationals fans will cherish this moment for a long, long time: Daniel Hudson got Tommy Edman to fly out to Victor Robles in center field for the final out of NLCS Game 4, wrapping up a 7-4 victory and completing a series sweep. The Nationals earned entry into the World Series for the first time in franchise history.

Here’s a recap of the game if you’re into that kind of thing.

The Nationals will anxiously watch the conclusion of the ALCS, which the Astros currently lead two games to one after defeating the Yankees 4-1 on Tuesday.
