A foul tip hit Gary Sanchez juuust below the belt, and David Robertson's reaction was perfect

Major League Baseball's picture

The Yankees held strong in Tuesday night's AL Wild Card Game, beating the Twins, 8-4, thanks in large part to right-hander David Robertson, who came out of the bullpen in the third inning and fired 3 1/3 innings of shutdown relief. 

In the sixth inning, though, something happened. A foul tip grazed off catcher Gary Sanchez, and ... well ... it looked like it hurt:

From the mound, Robertson reacted as many folks watching the game around the world probably did: 


Raise your cup to Robertson for his great performance in the game -- and for his reaction after Sanchez took a foul tip to an area below the belt and above the thighs.
