Mets Game Thread: Syndergaard Up To Challenge

The Mets had to be curious to see how Noah Syndergaard would react under pressure and he didn’t disappoint.

In the third, the Cubs loaded the bases in large part to a couple of walks, but he got ahead of Jorge Soler on a pair of wicked curveballs before getting him on a fly to right to end the inning.

Syndergaard also got out of a two-on, one-out jam in the second.

Then in the fifth, Kris Bryant hit a one-out triple, but after a walk Syndergaard punched out Miguel Montero.

Through five innings, Syndergaard has given up three hits and four walks, with five strikeouts.

Mets 0, Cubs 0 (6th)
