This match up included two of the national league’s finest pitchers. STEPHEN STRASBURG from the Washington Nationals, and NOAH SYNERGAARD from the Mets, faced each other in the Mets home opener at Citi FIELD. STRASBURG won the day, pitching 6 2/3rd innings, allowing no runs, 3 hits, and striking out 9. I captured three outstanding images of STRASBURG. New York Mets NOAH SYNDERGAARD pitched a gem of a game. Allowing only 1 hit and 2 runs. I sent you SYNDERGAARD’S first pitch of the game.
One of Washington’s hitting stars was outfielder, VICTOR ROBLES, who hit a home run in the top of the 6th inning, giving them a 2-0 lead. I got a very nice of this home run and 2 celebration images.
Finally, I captured a particularly nice shot of a sacrifice bunt in the top of the 2nd inning by WILMER DIFO, which gave the Nationals a 1-0 lead, a lead they never relinquished.
