LOOK: Curtis Granderson loses part of his tooth on slide

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

In the ninth inning of Game 5 of the NLCS vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers, Curtis Granderson drilled an RBI double for the Milwaukee Brewers. But it came with a price — part of one of his tooth.

As Granderson slid into second, his helmet flew off, bounced into the base, and popped right back up into his face. A part of one of his teeth fell to the Dodger Stadium infield.

That couldn’t have felt too good for Granderson. Despite that, he stayed in the game.

Granderson’s Brewers were defeated 5-2 by the Dodgers, who now lead the NLCS 3-2.
