New York Mets starting pitcher, NOAH SYNDERGAARD, strikes out St. Louis Cardinals lead off hitter Dexter Fowler in the New York Mets home opener at CitiFIELD. SYNDERGAARD struck out 10 batters allowing six hits and four runs in 6 innings, leading the Mets to a 9-4 victory.
I have uploaded 7 selected images from today’s New York Mets home opener won by the Mets 9-4. The Mets looked very strong in both pitching and hitting. NOAH SYNDERGAAR pitched 6 strong innings, striking out 10 batters, while giving up 6 hits and four runs. Mets relief pitcher ROBERT GSELLMAN faced three batters and struck them all out; and Mets closer, JEURYS FAMILIA, retired the Cardinals in the ninth inning without giving up a hit.
On the hitting side of the ledger, the Mets had 12 hits, with BARNDON NIMMO, YOENIS C’ESPEDES, ADRIA’N GONZA’LEZ, KEVIN PLAWECKI, AND AMED ROSARIO getting multiple hits each. It was a great start for the Mets.
I am now headed for the New York Yankees home opener on April 2.
