Atlanta Braves pitcher Scott Downs had a scary moment when he was nailed by a comebacker from Chase Utley in the Atlanta Braves' 6-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday at Citizens Bank Park. Fox Sports South reports that he has a non-displaced fracture in the top of his right ring finger.

The good news is that Downs didn't injure his pitching hand, so he will likely be able to pitch as soon as the pain has subsided.

Utley was the only batter Downs faced, who reached on an infield single off Downs' hand.
