Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval left Wednesday's game against the Cubs after he was struck in the mouth by Joey Gathright's bad-hop grounder in the fifth inning. Sandoval wears braces, and both his top and bottom lip were pushed into the braces. "It implanted his lips to his braces. [Trainer] Dave Groeschner had to pull his lips off," manager Bruce Bochy said. Sandoval, the Giants' top candidate to start at third base while getting a crash course there this season, also chipped a tooth and was sent to see a dentist. "That's a hard infield, like a lot of these are in the desert, and it just came up on him," Bochy said. Sandoval, hitting .450, is likely to miss the next two games, Bochy said.

Analysis: Sandoval should be fine after they remove his lips from his braces, ouch.

Ouch, hate to see that happen to a promising player. I am glad he is going to be ok
