ST. LOUIS (AP) New York Mets right fielder Jay Bruce made an early exit Wednesday night against St. Louis because of a cramp in his right calf.
The Mets said he came out in the second inning as a precaution.
Bruce led off the inning with an opposite-field double to shallow right. With one out, he was replaced by pinch-runner Alejandro De Aza.
Bruce began the night hitting .158 in 20 games since being acquired in a trade from Cincinnati.
