Nats' Sanchez, Mets' McNeil and Conforto exit injured

Nationals starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez and Mets left fielder Jeff McNeil and right fielder Michael Conforto all exited New York's 7-6 loss at Washington on Thursday afternoon due to injuries. Sanchez came out with left hamstring soreness with one out in the top of the second and the Nationals ahead 4-0. Sanchez was upset and walked around the mound as manager Dave Martinez and the team's trainer came to see him.

Sanchez walked off on his own power, and Erick Fedde took over on the mound for Washington. Sanchez remains 0-6 on the season, but he lowered his ERA to 5.10. McNeil left in the bottom of the third as a precaution because of abdominal tightness. He led off the game with a popout and singled in the top of the third.

Juan Lagares entered the game in center and Brandon Nimmo moved from center to left for the Mets in the middle of the third inning. McNeil is hitting .354 this season, the second-best average in the major leagues.

Conforto left the game in the bottom of the fifth after he collided with second baseman Robinson Cano as they chased a bloop double off the bat of Howie Kendrick. Conforto stayed on the ground for a few seconds then began to walk back to his spot in right. However, he was looked at by a team trainer and then walked to the Mets' dugout. The team later announced he had been diagnosed with a concussion.

Keon Broxton took over in right with the game tied at 4. The next batter, Gerardo Parra, homered to give Washington a 6-4 lead. --Field Level Media
