Incredible scene on the baseball diamond in Oakland Thursday … Chris Bassitt returned to the mound just a few weeks after a comebacker broke his face — and he dominated!!
The A’s star pitcher — who was seriously injured during a game against the White Sox on Aug. 17 — took the hill for the first time since the freak play … and threw 3 scoreless innings against the Mariners.
He also struck out four and only gave up one hit … and the crowd in Oakland was THRILLED to see it all.
Of course, it was hard to fathom seeing this scene just a month ago … ’cause Bassitt was hit so hard by a line drive, he needed a plate put into his face to stabilize the damage.
The 32-year-old, though, worked his ass off to come back to give Oakland just what it needed … and, now, the A’s currently lead 4-1 in the fourth inning.
