Eric Chavez was involved in one of the goofier plays of the night Tuesday, as he inadvertently hit Cody Eppley in the head with a throw. Forward until about :46.
Eppley recorded a pair of groundouts after entering the game in the sixth, getting a new ball from home-plate umpire Bob Davidson after the second out. Not realizing that his pitcher had been given a new one, Chavez threw it to him, clunking it off the top of his head.
Girardi and a team trainer came to the mound to make sure Eppley was okay, but he remained in the game.
