Noah Syndergaard didn’t make Mets look good for caving to him

DENVER — To point out that a personal catcher didn’t lead to Noah Syndergaard’s personal best would be putting it too politely even for Thor’s liking.

Even after an exciting, 7-4 victory over the Rockies on Wednesday afternoon at Coors Field, which kept the Mets’ miracle playoff dream as alive as it can be, Syndergaard couldn’t hide his frustration over his mediocre start — and mediocre season — despite getting paired with a preferred battery mate in Rene Rivera.

“Pretty disappointed overall, but at the end of the day, we got the win. That’s all that matters,” said Syndergaard, who allowed four runs in 5 ²/u2083 innings and left the game as the losing pitcher before his teammates rallied.
