New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard dominates the San Francisco Giants to the tune of a two-hit complete game.

Don’t look now but the New York Mets are putting forth nice and tidy accomplishments. The latest such late-season feat comes in the form of Noah Syndergaard.

Thor, as friends and fellow superheroes call him, tossed a complete game two-hitter on Sunday while helping his club to a 4-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants.


He threw 114 pitches in the first complete game of his career while striking out 11, walking just one and relenting just two hits. His only blemish came in the form of a sac-fly by the opposing starting pitcher, Chris Stratton.

He was filthy the entire day, showcasing just how much talent is actually in that mighty right arm.

Offensively, the damage was done by two individuals, Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil.

Mikey C. decided to get the party started in the second inning when he clubbed his 20th homer of the season. It was a two-run variety that put the Mets up for good.

McNeil continued his impressive rookie campaign by finishing 2-for-4 with a two-run single in the eighth inning.

Todd Frazier was also key at the plate, collecting two hits on the day.

The Mets have now won nine of their last 15 and 18 of their last 29. With McNeil, Conforto and Amed Rosario hitting coupled with the pitching now humming along, suddenly, the franchise is trending upward once again.

Next up is a three-game slate against the Dodgers in Los Angeles before welcoming in the rival Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.
