The New York Mets went 3-3 in the opening week of the MLB season and it was ace Noah Syndergaard who stepped in to lift the Mets to a win on Sunday night, avoiding a three-game sweep from the division rival Marlins.
Noah Syndergaard became just the second pitcher in franchise history to homer twice in the same game, and backed it up with eight solid innings to lead the Mets to a 4-3 win over the Dodgers in L.A. on Wednesday.
Daniel Murphy homered for the fourth straight playoff game while Noah Syndergaard kept the Cubs' offense off balance, striking out nine over 5 and 2/3 innings as the Mets opened up a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven NLCS, taking a 4-1 win on Sunday night at Citi Field.
Noah Syndergaard had 'a day' on the mound and at the plate on Wednesday leading the Mets to a 7-0 shutout of the rival Phillies that completed a three-game sweep - a nice bounce back from a weekend trip to Pittsburgh that saw the Pirates sweep New York.
The New York Mets front office made what I would call a wise decision over the weekend, officially coming to terms with the Toronto Blue Jays to trade recently crowned Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey.
