New York Mets

Another day in the life of the New York Mets, another splendid game as this time they knock off the Colorado Rockies 12-3.

For the second outing in a row Noah Syndergaard wasn’t downright phenomenal. Instead, he showed some human signs (directly opposing his nickname of Thor).

Syndergaard allowed three runs, two home runs and five hits while striking out just five over seven innings of work. Still, it was more than enough to lift the New York Mets to a 12-3 victory, their fourth straight over the Colorado Rockies.


This completed a sweep of the Rocks, coming of the heels of two straight losses to end the Tampa Bay series.

Curtis Granderson (20), Kelly Johnson (11) and Juan Lagares (4) all homered today for a potent lineup.

They have now moved to a full four-games ahead of the Washington Nationals. They’ll now move onto a much tougher test, welcoming in the Pittsburgh Pirates for a three games set at Citi.
