NEW YORK -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Johnny Hellweg beaned David Wright in the helmet with a third-inning pitch, forcing the captain from Thursday's game at Citi Field.

Wright walked to the dugout with an escort from trainer Ray Ramirez and manager Terry Collins after being struck with the 86 mph changeup.

He subsequently passed a concussion test.

It marked the second time in Wright's career he was beaned. Wright suffered a concussion and landed on the disabled list on Aug. 15, 2009 when San Francisco's Matt Cain drilled him with a 94 mph fastball.

Hellweg also plunked the next batter, Lucas Duda. He threw only 37 of 80 pitches for strikes while also walking four batters and uncorking a wild pitch in four innings.

Wright had just returned last Friday after missing seven weeks with a strained right hamstring.
