Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips exited Monday’s game after being hit by a pitch in the fourth inning by New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard.

Phillips, who fouled two balls off of his foot earlier in the at-bat, was nailed by Syndergaard’s 98 mph fastball on his left ring finger. Upon being hit, Phillips dropped to his hands and knees, and was then removed from the game. ​Ivan De Jesus Jr. pinch ran for him at first base.​ 

X-rays came back negative for Phillips after being hit by the pitch.

In his first at-bat, Phillips recorded an infield single, which gave him a hit in all 33 road games he’s played against the Mets in his career.
