Here’s how you DON’T bunt a baseball …
Max Scherzer — arguably the best pitcher in the MLB — was working on his bunting game in Nationals’ batting practice Tuesday … when he popped a pitch straight into his face!!
The ball flew into his nose and right eye … and the 3-time Cy Young winner had to leave the field as a bloody mess.
WATCH – Max Scherzer, who’s scheduled to start Wednesday, was hit in the face by a ball during batting practice.

Bad news for Washington … x-Rays revealed he broke his nose — and he even needed a CT scan to determine if his brain was okay.
Good news for Washington? Scherzer is reportedly doing much better Wednesday … and wants to make his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Phillies!!!
Who said hockey players were the only tough guys left in sports?!?
