Wilson exits after foul ball hits mask

ANAHEIM -- Angels catcher Bobby Wilson left Monday night's game against the Mariners in the bottom of the second inning after getting hit in the mask with a foul tip in the first.

Wilson, who was replaced by John Hester before his at-bat in the second inning, took a foul tip off the bat of Kyle Seager just before the Mariners third baseman hit a solo home run. The Angels said he was removed for precautionary reasons and will be monitored throughout the game.

In 31 games with the Angels, Wilson is batting .171 with one home run and six RBIs.
