"I asked the trainer if I was bleeding or something, because I thought my nose was broken," Segura said. "He said, 'No, you're not bleeding.' Thank God it's nothing serious and I can keep helping my team."
Manager Ron Roenicke, who was on the scene along with head athletic trainer Dan Wright, breathed a sigh of relief.
"When he's down and not moving, too, you're not sure," Roenicke said. "It's huge to not lose him, but he stayed in the ballgame, which is really good. [Segura] is a big part. He's playing nice defense, and I think he's going to hit."
Segura eventually scored the second of the Brewers' runs. He finished the night 1-for-2 and is 2-for-5 in the first two games of the season.
