The Flying Squirrel took one for the crew on Wednesday at Oracle Park in San Francisco.

Mets left fielder Jeff McNeil appeared shaken up after chasing down a third-inning fly ball off the bat of the Giants’ Donovan Walton, crashing into the wall alongside the third bottom line.

McNeil appeared to slam his knee and face into the wall — leaving rips within the material — however initially stayed within the recreation after being checked out by Mets trainers. Teammates supplied high-fives to the versatile fielder as he entered the dugout on the finish of the inning. The 30-year-old was in the end pulled for pinch-hitter Travis Jankowski within the fourth inning.
