The play came when Bryant was attempting to advance on a wild pitch. Braves' catcher Tyler Flowers gunned down Bryant, who slid into third base head first and appeared to catch a finger on third baseman Johan Camargo's foot as he tagged out Bryant.

This comes just one day after Astros All-Star Carlos Correa was put on the DL for a torn ligament in his thumb that stemmed from injuring his hand sliding into home plate in a game versus the Braves before the All-Star break.
Mike Trout also missed some two months earlier this season sliding into second base head first on a stolen base.
Bryant is hitting .273 this season with 19 home runs and 40 RBIs.
