New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard trolls the Cleveland Indians after a three-game sweep at Citi Field.
This past week, the New York Mets improved their record to 67-60 with their third, fourth, and fifth straight wins. They ultimately swept the Cleveland Indians at Citi Field to begin their nine-game homestand.
The final win, which came Thursday night, was called after eight innings due to two separate rain delays. The Mets won the game 2-0, and it wasn’t complete without right-hander Noah Syndergaard trolling their opponents on Twitter afterward.

The Indians have established themselves as one of the hottest teams in baseball this entire summer. Therefore, the Mets sweeping them is huge going forward, as they’re right in the mix in the National League Wild Card race.
Syndergaard got the win last night, having pitched 6.0 innings, allowing two hits and zero earned runs. He additionally walked none and struck out five and had a perfect game going through 5.1 innings pitched.
Thor didn’t return to the mound after the initial rain delay, which lasted two hours and 28 minutes.
The Mets then played ball until the bottom of the eighth inning, when another delay was initiated. That one lasted 36 minutes before the game was eventually called.
Mets catcher Wilson Ramos was the only individual to snag some RBIs in the contest. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Ramos lined a two-run double down the right-field line. Second baseman Joe Panik and outfielder Michael Conforto scored on the play.
New York will continue their homestand with a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves beginning on Friday at 7:10 p.m. ET.
