Taijuan Walker left the New York Mets' game against the Atlanta Braves on Monday night with tightness in his left side. Walker pitched only three innings, allowing one hit and no runs, before leaving the game. The right-hander's injury is only the latest for the Mets, who added two regulars to the injured list before the game and already have ace starter Jacob deGrom recovering from right side tightness.
Ian Anderson flirted with a no-hit bid, and he knew it. “I was thinking about it,” Anderson said. The 23-year-old right-hander walked four and struck out four before the Brewers ended Anderson’s bid in the seventh.
Atlanta Braves right-hander Huascar Ynoa suffered a broken right hand when he punched the dugout bench following a poor start at Milwaukee on Sunday and is expected to miss two months. Braves manager Brian Snitker said Ynoa's hand was hurting on the flight back to Atlanta, leading to the tests which revealed the fracture. Ynoa was frustrated after giving up five runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings of the 10-9 loss to the Brewers.
