Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard was forced out of Saturday night's game against the Phillies after he was hit in the ribs by a line drive in the seventh inning.
X-Rays came back negative for Syndergaard, who admitted that getting hit was "a scary situation."
"That's been my nightmare ever since I started playing baseball and today was my judgment day of having a screamer come back at me," he said after the game. "Everyone is asking me if I'm OK? I'm just concerned if the ball is alright."
Syndergaard pitched well for the first five innings, as he allowed just four hits and no runs.
But the Phillies went on to score four runs on eight more hits over the next two innings and Syndergaard finished with five walks, 12 hits, and four strikeouts while throwing 109 pitches.
The 26-year-old right-hander earned his 11th victory of the season and has a 3.44 ERA this season for the Mets.
