Syndergaard didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Brewers, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings while striking out eight. The right-hander threw 50 of 78 pitches for strikes and generated 15 swinging strikes before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning, and Syndergaard was actually in line for the loss before the Mets bailed him out in the top of the ninth. He'll take a 3.06 ERA and dominant 76:13 K:BB in 64.2 innings into his next outing Wednesday in Atlanta.
Syndergaard (4-1) allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out seven across seven innings Sunday as he picked up the win against the Diamondbacks. Syndergaard continued his dominance on the hill in Sunday's outing, as he recorded a quality start and fanned seven batters in as many innings. After allowing a run in the second, he was essentially lights-out until being lifted after seven strong innings. In 10 starts this season, he's accrued a 2.91 ERA and 1.19 WHIP to go along with 68 strikeouts over 58.2 innings. The 25-year-old's next start figures to come Friday against Milwaukee.
Syndergaard (3-1) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks across five innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Blue Jays. He struck out seven. Syndergaard struggled to find the strike zone at times, throwing just 56 percent of his pitches for strikes. He struggled in the third inning, loading the bases on two hits and a hit batsman before allowing a two-run single. Syndergaard escaped the jam and continued on, but an elevated pitch count limited him to his second-shortest outing of the season. Still, the man they call Thor hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in a start since the opener and has a solid 3.14 ERA heading into Monday's favorable matchup with the Marlins.
Syndergaard won't make his scheduled start Saturday after the Mets' game against the Phillies was postponed due to inclement weather, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The two teams will make the game up as part of a doubleheader in August. According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, the Mets are sticking with Jacob deGrom for Sunday's series finale, so Syndergaard's next start will now come Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Syndergaard gave up two earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out six over six innings, but he didn't factor into the decision in the Mets' 3-2 loss to the Rockies on Sunday. Syndergaard hasn't been his absolute sharpest over this last two trips to the mound, giving up 16 hits with an 8:5 K:BB over his last 12 innings, but he's still logged a quality start in both of those outings. There's no apparent reason to be concerned about the big right-hander. He now has a 3.09 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 46.2 innings and will look to get back to his lights-out ways in his next start against the Phillies next Saturday.
