Mets' Alonso exits game after being hit by pitch

Mets slugger Pete Alonso leaves game after hit on wrist by Yu Darvish pitch 11:13 PM ET ESPN News Services SAN DIEGO -- New York Mets slugger Pete Alonso left Tuesday night's game against the San Diego Padres after getting hit by a pitch and falling awkwardly leading off the second inning. The pitch from Yu Darvish appeared to hit Alonso on the right wrist. Alonso appeared to swing, but the Mets challenged and it was ruled a hit by pitch and Alonso was awarded first base. He had headed to the clubhouse by then and was replaced by pinch-runner J.D. Davis . When the Mets went back in the field, Davis took over for Alonso at first base. Mets outfielder Starling Marte also departed with an apparent leg injury suffered while sliding. He initially stayed in the game before exiting. Alonso came into the game tied with Mookie Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL lead with 16 home runs. The two-time Home Run Derby champion leads the majors with 54 RBI and is tied for 10th in Mets history with 122 career homers. Alonso, the 2019 NL Rookie of the Year, hit safely in his previous four games, going 6 for 18 with eight runs, a double, three homers, seven RBI, eight runs, a walk and a 1.257 OPS.
