(Newser) – Atlanta Braves pitcher Huascar Ynoa was apparently frustrated during Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers, but his reaction did not improve the situation. After allowing five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings, Ynoa punched a dugout bench ... and broke his pitching hand, USA Today reports. The Braves' manager tells the Athletic that there's "probably nobody that feels any worse than" Ynoa himself over the situation, which will keep him on the injured list for months. The Braves again made headlines for an unconventional reason during Monday's game against the New York Mets, when the Mets' Kevin Pillar was hit in the face by a fastball from a Braves pitch. He's since assured fans he's "doing fine," ESPN reports. (Read more Atlanta Braves stories.)
