Kevin Pillar continues to prove he’s an absolute savage, as he hit two home runs with a bloody bat this week.
No one and we mean no one will ever be able to question the toughness of New York Mets outfielder Kevin Pillar. Earlier this spring, one of the scariest moments of the campaign came when Pillar got drilled in the face and blood was flying everywhere. That was on May 17.
About two weeks later, Pillar was back in action for New York. On Wednesday night, the veteran smashed two home runs. That’s not the entire story, though. A close-up look at his bat showcases some bloody lumber. Goodness.
New York Mets fans can’t stop showing Kevin Pillar love for his toughness
As you can see in the photo above, Pillar’s nose is still messed up from when he got drilled with the 94 MPH heater last month. You think that’s going to have an impact on him at the plate? No chance.
He made that much clear by belting his two homers against the Orioles. While Pillar has already come out and said the blood isn’t from when he originally got hit in the face, this still shows how much of an animal he is for his ball club.
On the season, he’s hitting .262, with 4 homers and 13 RBI. The Mets are of course in the middle of an impressive season, as the team currently sits in first place of the NL East standings with their 30-24 mark. They’re 3.5 games ahead of the Phillies, while the Braves are four games back. Pillar might still be in pain from his traumatic experience, but nothing is going to stop him from helping his team go out and try to win the division.
