DENVER (AP) — A television reporter who covers the Colorado Rockies is recovering after being struck in the forehead by a foul ball earlier this week.

AT&T Sportsnet reporter Kelsey Wingert was covering Monday night's game between the Giants and Rockies when she was struck by a foul ball off the bat of San Francisco outfielder Austin Slater.

She tweeted a photo on Thursday that shows stitches on her forehead. She says she spent five hours at the hospital and medical tests showed there were no fractures.
