Joe West fell and he couldn’t get up

A fun — fun? I dunno — moment in last night’s Phillies-Mets game. Joe West was working home plate in the top of the eighth inning when Jeff McNeill smacked one to first base with the infield in. Rhys Hoskins fielded it and threw home as Mets outfielder Rajai Davis attempted to score from third.

The throw was on target, Davis slid and he was . . . safe? out?

Well, we had to wait a minute to know for sure because Davis took out West’s legs on the slide and West had a bit of an issue getting up off of him. Eventually, however, he got an assist from Phillies pitcher Hector Neris and made the call:

To Davis — who, yes, was out — it must’ve felt like an eternity:

Myers was admitted to a local hospital and underwent a series of tests, but all came back normal and he feels fine today. The team believes it may have been a matter of Myers being dehydrated and that he should available to play in tomorrow night’s game against the Dodgers.
