A scary moment took place in the top of the sixth inning of Sunday’s Mets-Brewers game when right-hander Noah Syndergaard, cruising along with a 5-0 lead in just his second Major League start, drilled Milwaukee’s Carlos Gomez with a 97 mph fastball, hitting him in the left ear flap.
The crowd let out a loud groan as Gomez collapsed and lay motionless, his right leg quivering for several moments.
After more than a minute, he stood up and was checked on by Brewers’ personnel before he walked off the field under his own power, escorted by several team officials.
Meanwhile, Mets manager Terry Collins went out to the mound to check on Syndergaard to obviously calm him down.
Up to that point, Syndergaard was enjoying an impressive afternoon, striking out four and giving up just two hits, including a leadoff single in the sixth.
He was able to maintain his composure, however, striking out the next batter in the sixth, Krish Davis.
