A scary scene unfolded at Yankee Stadium during the sixth inning of Tuesday's game between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros.

Yankees second baseman Rougned Odor collided with Astros catcher Martin Maldonado as he was trying to score.

Odor's leg appeared to buckle as it stepped on the plate and collided with the side of Maldonado's head.

Both players were on the ground for several minutes before leaving the field. Odor was helped off but was seen walking under his own power in the dugout shortly after.

The incident occurred as Odor attempted to advance after an errant throw to first base, and an ensuing throw arrived at home plate just as the second baseman crashed into Maldonado. The run counted.

Odor hurt his left knee on the play and will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, the Yankees announced.

Meanwhile, Maldonado tested negative for concussion symptoms, but he suffered a trap contusion, according to Julia Morales of AT&T Sportsnet SW.

Tyler Wade replaced Odor at second base, while Jason Castro took over behind the plate for Maldonado.
