NEW YORK (AP) — Prized Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard earned his first major league win, the success tempered when he beaned Carlos Gomez with a 96 mph fastball, and New York beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Sunday.

Syndergaard (1-1) shut down the Brewers for the first five innings in his Citi Field debut, giving up just one single. In the sixth, he gave everyone a scare.

After a leadoff single, Syndergaard hit Gomez squarely in the helmet. The two-time All-Star outfielder went face down in the dirt for a few seconds, and Syndergaard clapped into his glove when Gomez was helped into a sitting position by two Milwaukee trainers.

Gomez walked off the field with the trainers at his side and was replaced by a pinch runner.
