Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Keston Hiura (bottom left) and shortstop Orlando Arcia (second from right) are checked after they collided trying to field a ball hit by the Pirates’ Colin Moran in the eighth inning Saturday, July 6, 2019. Arcia left the game on a cart. Moran was safe at first.

Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia still was being evaluated after a collision with second baseman Keston Hiura during Saturday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

The two ran into each other while converging on a ground ball hit by Colin Moran in the eighth inning.

Arcia stayed down for several minutes. He eventually sat up while being carted off and waved to the crowd. Hiura remained in the game.

Manager Craig Counsell said shoulder pain is probably the worst of the symptoms for Arcia. Counsell said Hiura seemed to be fine.

“They’re both just trying to make a play,” Counsell said. “Just in the wrong spot and hit at the wrong speed. My understanding is Orlando’s shoulder hit Keston probably somewhere in the head area.”
