Simple physics -- Jason Heyward is 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, Nate McLouth is 5-11, 180-pounds, when they collide someone's going to be hurt and it's no surprise which player left the game.
The ball bounced away from McLouth and to the wall and Gerardo Parra raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run, giving the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning.
It was the first home run Peter Moylan had given up since opening day of 2008, a streak of 123 games. Moylan didn't allow a home run in 88 appearances last season.
UPDATE: McLouth has a headache and will be evaluated throughout the night, MLB.com's Mark Bowman Tweets. McLouth was seen by doctors before the Diamondbacks finished up the 2-1 victory.
