Mets unsuccessful on hit-by-pitch challenge

NEW YORK -- Mets manager Terry Collins challenged a call Thursday night at Citi Field, contending that a Rafael Soriano slider down-and-in to Lucas Duda hit the first baseman on the foot.

After a review, the ruling on the field -- that the pitch did not hit Duda -- was confirmed.

Duda was at the plate with the Mets down three runs and down to their last out. He grounded out to end the game, a 4-1 Nationals win.
