SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners right fielder Mitch Haniger was hit in the face by a 95 mph fastball from Mets starter Jacob deGrom in the second inning Saturday.

Haniger was down in the batter’s box for a couple minutes, then was able to walk off the field with blood dripping from his mouth. He suffered a cut in his mouth and was taken off-site for further examination.

He was replaced by pinch-runner Guillermo Heredia, which loaded the bases with one out.
