New York Mets right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka started against the San Diego Padres on Sunday but left in the first inning after falling ill with an upset stomach.

Matsuzaka, who was suffering from bouts of nausea before the game, walked two batters but got Chase Headley to ground out to end the inning after a pep talk from Mets manager Terry Collins. The Mets defeated the Padres 3-1.
