‘Thor’ Enters Game in Relief Role (VIDEO)
The Mets lost last night to the White Sox by a score of 6-4 at Citi Field. In fact, the Mets blew a 4-0 lead in that game.
But that loss was not because of Noah Syndergaard. After being ejected this weekend for throwing behind Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, Syndergaard came in relief on Tuesday night for what ESPN reporter Adam Rubin called a "glorified bullpen."
Check out the reaction in the video below from the fans who got to see Syndergaard enter the game in the top of the seventh inning. "Thor" hit 101 MPH on a strikeout of Adam Eaton and also fanned Todd Frazier to end the inning.
With Matt Harvey's struggles this year (last start not withstanding), Syndergaard has become the face of the vaunted Mets pitching staff. It's hard to believe that he made his debut just last season.
The Mets are 29-22 and are two games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East.
