Quotes from the visitor’s clubhouse … Mets manager Terry Collins

On Jose Reyes’s injury: “The x-rays were negative, real sore, it hit him right on the bone. We’re going to have the x-rays checked by our doctors but hopefully it’s negative.”

On Seth Lugo’s starts recently: “I’m sure he wishes he made a bit better pitch but again, getting off to this slow start, you look up and you’re down you have to battle back and get in the game. Seth gave us that opportunity, shut them down for three innings and gave us an opportunity to come back. Their kid pitched really good, Paxton pitched really good.”
