PHILADELPHIA -- New York Mets pitcher Taijuan Walker left his start against the Phillies after two innings because of right shoulder irritation.

Walker struck out four, walked none and threw 30 pitches, retiring all six batters before he left the game. David Peterson started the third inning.

Walker went 7-11 with a 4.47 ERA last season, his first with the Mets.
