Injury Scout - O'Nora Exits After Low Foul Ball

HP Umpire Brian O'Nora left Saturday's Cardinals-Mets game in New York shortly after a mid-body foul ball injury during the 3rd inning.

With none out and one on in the top of the 3rd, Cardinals batter Matt Carpenter fouled a 1-2 99-mph sinker from Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard into O'Nora's groin, resulting in an injury delay before the resumption of play, and shortly before O'Nora was seen jogging off the field with a hand covering his mouth during subsequent batter Dexter Fowler's plate appearance.

1B Umpire Chad Whitson moved from first to become the new home plate umpire with 2B Umpire Mark Ripperger sliding to first base and 3B Umpire/Crew Chief Jeff Kellogg remaining on the left field line to complete the contest as a three-umpire crew.

O'Nora was replaced Sunday by minor league call-up umpire Ramon De Jesus.

Relevant Injury History: Tangentially, O'Nora left a 2013 PHI-NYM game due to an intestinal tear.
