DENVER -- Rockies catcher Nick Hundley took a foul tip to the mask in the fifth inning and was replaced in the sixth inning of Saturday night's 14-9 loss to the Mets at Coors Field.

A foul ball from the Mets' Wilmer Flores hit Hundley directly in the forehead area of his mask. Given a few moments to collect himself, Hundley finished the inning.

The Rockies have not made an official announcement on Hundley's injury. Manager Walt Weiss said Hundley "got dinged on a straight foul tip, took a good shot, and was a little woozy, so we got him out of there."

Weiss did not know if Hundley had undergone concussion protocol, which often happens in such instances. But a club spokesman checked with the training staff and said the only announcement was that Hundley was removed for precautionary reasons.

Dustin Garneau caught the final four frames and went 1-for-3.

Hundley was 1-for-1 with a walk Saturday, and he is batting .304 with nine home runs and 47 RBIs in the first year of a two-year, $6.25 million contract.
