Syndergaard (8-3) allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five across 5.2 innings as he took the loss Friday against Philadelphia. Syndergaard gave up three runs in the first inning and one in the fourth prior to exiting the game with a three-run deficit. He tossed a season-high 115 pitches, 71 for strikes. Prior to Friday's outing, the 25-year-old right-hander had recorded two straight wins despite surrendering seven runs over 13.1 frames while fanning 13. Syndergaard will look to turn in a better outing his next time through the rotation, which figures to come Wednesday against San Francisco.
Syndergaard (8-2) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks across seven innings to earn the win Sunday against the Marlins. He struck out seven. Syndergaard allowed singular runs in three different innings, but he did well to limit the damage each time and still came away with a quality start. He threw 68 percent of his pitches for strikes and induced 10 groundball outs to help his cause. Luckily, Syndergaard got just enough run support to escape with a victory and has now done so in four of his last five starts. His strikeout totals are also trending upward after recording just 11 in his first 17 innings since returning from the disabled list, and he'll look to continue his recent form this weekend against the Phillies.

Despite this, he managed to notch a win in his second start since returning from a stint on the disabled list. Syndergaard heads into his next outing with a 3.17 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 93 punchouts over 88 innings.

Syndergaard turned in a quality outing, allowing one run in the first and two more in the third on a home run, but he would exit the ballgame with a 3-1 deficit. This was his first game back from yet another stint on the disabled list, as he'd been on the shelf since July 20 after contracting hand, foot and mouth disease while at a youth baseball camp. Through 14 starts this season, Syndergaard owns a 2.98 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with an 87:16 K:BB over 81.2 innings.
