Keys To A Series Win
Thor must continue to be Thor
There isn’t a better way to start this homestand than with the hardest thrower in baseball.
Syndergaard will look to jumpstart this homestand and dominate yet again. His presence could give the Mets and their fans a huge boost as well.
The Reds still have hitters like Brandon Philips, 2010 NL MVP Joey Votto and power hitter Jay Bruce that can hurt you. But Votto has been off to a slow start and if Syndergaard pitches like he has so far this season, he shouldn’t have many problems.
Bats must stay hot
The New York Mets struggled early because of their bats. The Amazins were back on the winning track on this road trip, mainly because of guess what? Their bats. As great as their pitching is, the bats are the key and the Mets must continue to hit not just the long ball but produce runs as well. If they can maintain their momentum offensively, they shouldn’t have much problem with this struggling Reds team.
