Darin Downs Suffers Fractured Skull; is Alert, Conscious, in ICU

Horrific news from Stacy Long:

Biscuits pitcher Darin Downs is in intensive care with a fractured skull at Birmingham's St. Vincent's Hospital after being hit by a line drive Monday.

Downs is alert and conscious, and doctors are monitoring some cranial bleeding and swelling, team spokesman Jon Laaser said.

Our prayers are with Downs and his family.
