New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, otherwise known as Thor, gets a little help from secret Avenger Dexter “The Deflector” Fowler.
Thor and The Deflector—the big-league team made in baseball heaven.
On Sunday, New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard smacked a home run thanks to his secret Avenger friend, Dexter “The Deflector” Fowler (video above). He’s quick, agile, lightning-fast and can deflect just about any object in his path.
The aided moonshot is Syndergaard’s fifth of his career and first in 2019. He joins fellow righty Jacob deGrom in the “home run by pitcher” category this season.
More importantly, shades of Jose Canseco have suddenly struck the world on this Easter Sunday.
On May 26, 1993, while playing for the Texas Rangers, everybody’s favorite PED whistleblower gifted Cleveland Indians corner-infielder Carlos Martinez a home run. It amazingly bounced off his dense head and over the fence.
It’ll forever remain nearly impossible to surpass or even duplicate such a moment. The entire world, Canseco included, felt the need for laughter despite the home run relented.
On Sunday, Fowler joins the Canseco class in far-less embarrassing fashion.
The Cardinals currently hold a 6-3 lead over Thor and the Mets in the top of the seventh inning of the rubber match. Syndergaard has already hit the showers after giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five in just five innings
At the very least, on this Easter Sunday 2019, Noah Syndergaard has found a secret Avenger friend, Dexter “The Deflector” Fowler.
