Home plate umpire Tony Randazzo leaves game in 14th inning

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Home plate umpire Tony Randazzo left the game between the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants before the top of the 14th inning.

Randazzo was hit directly in the mask by a 91 mph fastball from San Francisco's Johnny Cueto in the fifth inning but remained in the game until after the 13th inning Friday night. Second-base umpire Clint Fagan took his place.

Randazzo originally got hurt when Billy Hamilton squared to bunt Cueto's pitch but pulled the bat back at the last minute. Catcher Buster Posey couldn't get his glove on it and the ball hit Randazzo and knocked him straight to the ground. Giants trainer Dave Groeschner rushed out to check on Randazzo.
