NEW YORK (AP) - David Wright has left the New York Mets game against San Francisco after being hit squarely in the helmet by a 94 mph fastball from Giants starter Matt Cain.
Cain's 0-2 pitch with none out in the fourth inning of a scoreless game Saturday hit Wright just above the brim of the helmet, sending it flying as Wright fell to the ground in the right-handed batter's box.
Wright lay motionless on his stomach for over a minute before trainers helped turn him over onto his back. One trainer leaned in close as Wright was on his stomach, talking to the third baseman.
After Wright was turned over, he sat up and a trainer shone a light in his eyes.
