Despite another strong effort from the man affectionately known as Thor, the New York Mets fall in St. Louis by the final of 3-2.

Yet again, New York Mets starting pitcher (and part of the Phenom-Five) Noah Syndergaard, was strong. He didn’t even possess his top-notch stuff, but battled every bit of his seven innings (2 ER).

It wasn’t enough.

The Mets offense laid and egg as the St. Louis Cardinals edged them by the final of 3-2.

Thor’s costly mistake to MLB All-Star Johnny Peralta in the sixth inning turned out to due him in:

The only highlight offensively was Curtis Granderson hitting his fifth lead-off home run of the season:

The other glimmer of hope came in the ninth inning as the Mets cut the lead to 3-2 on a Ruben Tejada infield hit off of Trevor Rosenthal. In the end though, John Mayberry Jr. struck out swinging for the final out.

The Mets and Cards will play Game 2 on Saturday afternoon. The only other certainty than the Mets offense struggling again tomorrow is the idea that Keith Hernandez will enjoy himself in St. Louis tonight.
