Kevin Pillar continues to prove he’s an absolute savage, as he hit two home runs with a bloody bat this week.

No one and we mean no one will ever be able to question the toughness of New York Mets outfielder Kevin Pillar. Earlier this spring, one of the scariest moments of the campaign came when Pillar got drilled in the face and blood was flying everywhere.

That was on May 17.

About two weeks later, Pillar was back in action for New York. On Wednesday night, the veteran smashed two home runs. That’s not the entire story, though. A close-up look at his bat showcases some bloody lumber. Goodness.

New York Mets fans can’t stop showing Kevin Pillar love for his toughness

As you can see in the photo above, Pillar’s nose is still messed up from when he got drilled with the 94 MPH heater last month. You think that’s going to have an impact on him at the plate? No chance.

He made that much clear by belting his two homers against the Orioles. While Pillar has already come out and said the blood isn’t from when he originally got hit in the face, this still shows how much of an animal he is for his ball club.

On the season, he’s hitting .262, with 4 homers and 13 RBI. The Mets are of course in the middle of an impressive season, as the team currently sits in first place of the NL East standings with their 30-24 mark. They’re 3.5 games ahead of the Phillies, while the Braves are four games back. Pillar might still be in pain from his traumatic experience, but nothing is going to stop him from helping his team go out and try to win the division.

The Milwaukee Bucks won an instant-classic Game 7 against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night, taking the overtime victory, 115-111, to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

The win came despite the best efforts of Nets superstar Kevin Durant, who led his team with an astounding 48 points, nine rebounds, and six assists in 53 minutes on the court.

Before overtime, Durant nearly won the game for the Nets at the buzzer in regulation.

With the Nets trailing 109-107 with just six seconds left, the Nets had one chance left to tie or win the game.

Durant got the ball, and fought around his defender to put up what looked like the game-winner. He hit it.

While the refs called the shot a two on the court, they went to check the replay to ensure that they had gotten the call correct.

Looking at the replay, the refs confirmed the decision to call it a two, but Durant was just an inch away from sending his team through to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Instead, Durant's shot was only good enough to send the game to overtime.

After the game, Durant said that he had thought he had won the game with the shot.

"But my big-ass foot stepped on the line," Durant said. "I just saw how close I was to ending their season with that shot."

In the extra period, both sides were absolutely gassed, as both teams had leaned on their starters for the majority of minutes in the decisive game. The play was ugly, but eventually the Bucks were able to take a lead thanks to a clutch shot from Khris Middleton and hold on for the win.

Asked about the final play of regulation after the game, Middleton admitted that Durant's footing had saved their season.

"We just got lucky his toe was on the line," Middleton told the "Inside the NBA" crew on TNT after the game.

If Durant's shoe was a few sizes smaller, the Nets might be moving on. Instead, he and the Nets are heading into the offseason to prepare for next year.

Basketball is a game of inches.
