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.
Kevin Pillar walked off the field on his own after a scary moment in Atlanta on Monday night.
