Even with a brace to cover his shin the ball seemed to find away to hit Beltran where it hurts most. Beltran took a swing and fouled the ball right at the top of the brace he has last night against Hudson who the Mets seem to have his number.
Beltran finshed the at bat but then Collins took him out so they can X-ray the ankle. It came back negative and he is day to day. Beltran got a loud round of applause when he finished the at bat but you can tell he was in pain. He battled Hudson but eventually struck out after at least 10 pitches.
The Mets won 6-4 even with K Rod giving up a 3 run jack in the 9th. Box Score
Mets face the Brew crew on Tuesday.
