Robinson dealt with the intense headache in a quiet, dark room inside Citi Field. Matheny, speaking about three hours before the scheduled first pitch, projected that Robinson would be able to recover quickly enough to be available for the game.
Robinson collected two of the team's seven hits on Saturday.
Taking Robinson's place in center and in the eighth spot in the batting order was Adron Chambers, who had started just one other time since his May 18 promotion from Triple-A. Chambers entered the night 2-for-10 on the season.
