Mortal Syndergaard: Phillies 6, Mets 4

When you can’t stop losing, everything is impossible. It doesn’t help when one of the National League’s best pitchers is on the mound, confident and god-like, self-assured in his belief that he is going to leave your bats cold and silent.

But all Noah Syndergaard really proved tonight, facing a Phillies lineup he seemed primed to dominate, was that he is no god. Just a man with ridiculous hair.

Aarons Nola and Altherr played key roles in the evening’s rubber match, both getting a less than nightly start they could use to boost their reputations.
