Noah Syndergaard found out today what a lot of pitchers already know: Life can be tough when you can’t locate your fastball.
Today, the Mets’ prospect’s command was off as he gave up two runs on two hits and three walks in three innings in a game won, 3-2, over Detroit. The outing came five days after he gave up one hit in two scoreless innings against Atlanta.
Syndergaard’s fastball again topped out at 97 mph., but it’s not about how fast you throw it, but where you throw it.
* Eric Young played second base and misplayed a grounder into a two-run single.
