Giants 1st base coach out after getting hit in batting practice

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco Giants first base coach Roberto Kelly will miss at least the first two games of the NL championship series with a concussion after being hit in the back of the head by a foul ball in batting practice.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said before Game 1 against St. Louis that Kelly remains at home recovering a day after being hit by a ball off the bat of Buster Posey. Bochy said Kelly did not sleep much Saturday night and might come to the stadium Sunday to be checked out by the training staff.

Assistant batting coach Joe Lefebvre will take over Kelly's duties for at least the first two games of the series.

The 48-year-old Kelly has been the Giants' first base coach since 2008.
