Game recap May 11: Syndergaard hits two homers in Mets 4-3 win

Noah Syndergaard and home runs were the story last night in Los Angeles. Entering the game, Syndergaard had only given up one home run in 38.1 innings pitched. However, Thor gave up two home runs on Wednesday night — solo shots by Corey Seager and Yasmani Grandal.

Game recap April 13: Mets eke out win, but bats still quiet

On the shoulders of a solid start from Logan Verrett, he not of the crop of shiny young Mets’ hurlers, and some timely hitting, the Mets squeaked out a victory against the Marlins on Wednesday, 2-1.
