I have never once seen a more Mets win. Noah Syndergaard took the mound today and pitched an absolute gem. Complete game shutout, 10 punchouts, 2 walks and only 4 hits. Luckily Noah can also rake otherwise this game would have gone to extra innings. What a time for the offense to take a vacation, the Mets have scored one run in the last 19 innings and that was from the pitcher.
Thor also joins Johan Santana and Pete Falcone as the only Mets pitcher to pitch a complete game shutout and hit a dinger. Even more impressive becomes the first pitcher to pitch a 1-0 CGSO and homer since 1983, this feat has only been recorded 7 other times in all of baseball. Who needs no hitters? Not Noah Syndergaard apparently. A win is a win but this series has been ugly, welcome to the dog days of summer Mets fans, even if it’s only May.
