Tony Kemp came through right in the nick of time.



Like Neo dodging bullets, McHugh dodged the baseball as it came hurtling towards him.



In a post-game interview, McHugh said it did hit him.

"Right on my ring finger, on the very tip of my ring finger. Probably the best place it could have hit me," said McHugh.

The pitcher also tweeted about the incident.
