Benches Clear After Francisco Lindor Gets Hit By Pitch in Mets-Nationals Game!
According to reports both teams rushed the field during Friday night contest between the New York Mets and the Washington Nationals game. Watch Francisco Lindor get hit on the flip…
CelebnSports247.com reports that Shortstop Francisco Lindor was at the plate with a 4-3 Mets lead and a runner on second when he squared around to bunt.
Unfortunately, Nationals reliever Steve Cishek delivered his offering, an 89-mph fastball, that missed high and tight and appeared to strike Lindor in the C-flap of his helmet.
While Lindor aka “Paquito” remained on the ground, his teammates and manager Buck Showalter took the field and barked at Cishek.
The New York Mets Shortstop would eventually leave the game. X-rays on his jaw were negative and he passed concussion testing, according to ESPN.
The umpires, meanwhile, ejected Cishek, prompting the Nationals to turn to left-handed reliever Sean Doolittle. Nationals third base coach Gary DiSarcina was also tossed after the brouhaha.
