Tejada hits inside-the-park homer for Mets vs Phillies
NEW YORK (AP) Ruben Tejada has hit an inside-the-park homer for the New York Mets against Philadelphia.
With a runner on second and two outs in the second inning Wednesday night, Tejada hit a shallow pop fly down the right-field line. Domonic Brown charged in and reached down but could not make the catch, and the ball bounced by him as he flipped head over heels over a low retaining wall.
Second baseman Cesar Hernandez finally chased down the ball in the right-field corner, and Tejada slid home safely without a relay throw to the plate.
It was difficult to tell what part of his body Brown landed on. But after the play, he climbed over the wall and back onto the field as a Phillies trainer hustled out to check on him.
Brown initially remained in the game, but was removed in the bottom of the fourth.
