PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — X-rays of Amed Rosario’s left hand were negative Monday after the shortstop was hit with a pitch from Boston’s Mike Shawaryn. Rosario crouched in pain as the Mets’ medical personnel tended to him, then left the game.

To be honest, I don’t really have a lot of pain,” said Rosario, who was icing the hand after the Mets’ 9-3 loss to the Red Sox. “It’s just a little tight right now.”

Said Mickey Callaway: “He should be fine. We lucked out there.” The Mets hope Rosario will resume baseball activities Tuesday but will see how he feels in the morning.

Ken Santos, a Mets fan originally from Brentwood, and Kelly Santos, a Red Sox fan from outside Boston, decided to tie the knot at the ballpark before their favorite teams played each other.

“This has significant meaning for us,” Ken Santos said. “She’s a huge Red Sox fan, I’m a huge Mets fan. We both cheer for each other’s team when they’re not playing each other.”
