Woman cops a baseball to the head after male companion jumps out of the way

Heath Bell of the Arizona Diamondbacks gave up two home runs on Tuesday night and nobody feels worse about it than Heath Bell. Except for the woman who was hit in the face with one of the home runs as her male companion — presumably her husband — cowered in fear and jumped out of the way.

That's right, we got another ducker.

In 2010, a woman's boyfriend infamously bailed as a foul ball came screaming at her. And it's happened again.

Pete Kozma of the St. Louis Cardinals went deep against Bell in the seventh inning, some 420 feet away in left-center at Chase Field in Phoenix. As the ball came in hot, a female fan — probably in her 20s — turned her head and covered up to protect herself as she sat in her seat.

Meanwhile, the man seated next to her sprung up, pulled his arms close to his own body, gave a goofy expression and jumped out of the way as the ball hit his companion in the face. In the face!

As broadcaster Al Hrabosky put it:

"Nice goin', boyfriend."

If you look closely at the video, they're both wearing wedding rings. Not sure if they're betrothed to each other — at all, or for much longer, after this. Patting her head like she was a puppy completes the living family photo, though.
