Analysis: Tejada was hit just above the brim of the helmet Wednesday by Walker's 94 mph fastball with two outs and the Mets leading 1-0. Tejada fell to the ground and lay face down next to home plate until a Mets trainer came out and kneeled down next to the player. The 24-year-old Tejada was able to get to his feet and walk off the field on his own. Eric Campbell pinch ran and took over at shortstop in the bottom half.
