Houston Astros left fielder Yordan Alvarez and shortstop Jeremy Pena both exited the team's game against the host New York Mets after colliding in the eighth inning on Wednesday.

The players collided on a fly ball to shallow left field hit by Dominic Smith.

Pena made the catch but hit Alvarez in the face during the collision. Alvarez remained on the ground for several minutes but was able to stand on his own power before exiting the field on a medical cart.

Chas McCormick replaced Alvarez in left while Mauricio Dubon took over for Pena at shortstop.

Alvarez was 0-for-3 with a walk while Pena was 1-for-4 before the collision. Alvarez entered the day tied for second in the majors with 23 home runs.
