New York Mets

Noah Syndergaard shines on Tuesday night with six perfect innings as he helps the New York Mets defeat the San Diego Padres 4-0.

On Tuesday night New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard pitched the best game of his short MLB career.

All told, the man they call Thor surrendered no runs, three hits and struck out nine batters in eight full innings on the bump. His first six innings featured perfection (18 up, 18 down) en route to helping his team to the 4-0 victory over the San Diego Padres.

It was such a dominating performance that Mets fans are now dreaming of a “Big 3” at the top of the rotation.

As they’ve done so since their latest acquisitions, New York’s offense did the job. Lucas Duda got the party started in the bottom of the first inning with a two run home run off Padres starter James Shields.

The only other source of runs came in the bottom of the eighth when Curtis Granderson matched Duda’s bomb with a two-run shot of his own.

The story on this night was Syndergaard.

Since his June 26 start against Cincinnati, he’s been absolutely sizzling. In six starts including that night, Thor’s only allowed more than one earned run on one occasion (2 ER, July 10 vs. ARI). He’s only allowed six earned runs and has struck out 34 batters in 34 total innings.

He now sports a filthy 2.70 ERA on the 2015 MLB campaign.

Should Syndergaard continue this incredible rise to prominence, he’ll join Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom at the top of the rotation and scare the living daylights out of every NL team October bound.

As of right now the Mets trail the NL East leading Washington Nationals by a single game.
