One night after a crazy game between the New York Yankees and the New York Mets unfolded Sunday night at Citi FIeld, a bizarre scene played out Monday as the Mets hosted the St. Louis Cardinals and infielder Edmundo Sosa had a routine ground ball in the bottom of the second.

Despite the blow to the head, Valentine did indeed stay in the game.

The series with the Mets starts a crucial week for the Cardinals, who are just a game out of the second NL Wild Card spot, now held by the San Diego Padres. St. Louis hosts San Diego this coming weekend.
