NEW YORK (AP) -- Mets right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka has been lifted from his start against the San Diego Padres on Sunday after one inning because of a severe upset stomach.

Manager Terry Collins and a trainer visited Matsuzaka on the mound following a two-out walk to Seth Smith in the first. Matsuzaka remained in the game.

After getting Chase Headley to ground to first base for the third out, the 33-year-old Matsuzaka slowly walked off the field. He received a handshake from Collins in the dugout before going into the Mets clubhouse.

Carlos Torres took over for Dice-K to start the second.
