Milwaukee Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez left Sunday's game against the New York Mets after being hit in the head by a pitch thrown by Noah Syndergaard.
Gomez has a "facial contusion" but does not have a concussion, the Brewers said. After he was hit, he remained on the ground for roughly two minutes before walking off the field without assistance. He was replaced by Gerardo Parra.
Gomez spent the second half of April on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, but is batting .289 with an .800 OPS since his return.
Syndergaard was making his second career major-league start and his first at home.
The Mets went on to win the game, 5–1.
Gomez and Syndergaard exchanged well wishes on Twitter after the game.
