Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada hit an inside-the-park home run in New York's 9–4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday when a short fly ball to rightfield ended up bouncing all the way to the warning track at Citi Field.

With two outs in the second inning, Tejada came to the plate with Kelly Johnson on second base. He blooped a fly ball to rightfield, right along the foul line, that forced Phillies rightfielder Domonic Brown to charge in.

Brown, however, was unable to reach the ball in time and ended up falling into the stands. The ball bounced just in front of his glove and rolled toward the warning track. Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernandez ran out to corral the ball and throw it back into the infield.

Do Nationals, Giants have playoff hopes, or is NL field already set?

Brown appeared shaken up after the play and left the game. Darnell Sweeney moved from leftfield to rightfield, and Cody Asche entered to play leftfield.

Later, the Phillies said Brown was removed from the game due to “concerns” of a concussion.
