CINCINNATI (AP) -First baseman Carlos Delgado was out of the New York Mets' lineup Wednesday because of a sore hip.
Delgado grabbed his right hip after an awkward swing in the eighth inning of the Mets' 11-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Manager Willie Randolph came out of the dugout to check, but Delgado stayed in the game and struck out.
Afterward, he said he felt something pull when he took the swing. He didn't think it was a serious problem.
The Mets sent him for a magnetic resonance imaging test Wednesday as a precaution.
``We'll see what's going on with him,'' Randolph said, before Wednesday's game. ``Anytime it's one of your big guys, you get concerned. It could just be a little thing.''
Delgado hit his 22nd homer in the series opener Monday. He has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, with four homers during that span.
