NEW YORK, NY (WOIO) - New York Yankees' catcher Gary Sanchez took a direct hit to the groin in front of nearly 50,000 people Monday night.

The reaction from Yankees' pitcher David Robertson was priceless, and received a shout out from Sanchez himself:

The Yankees (91-71) -- who secure a wildcard spot and advanced to the ALDS after beating the Minnesota Twins 8-4 -- will face off against the red hot Cleveland Indians (102-60) in Cleveland Thursday at 7:38 p.m.
