Syndergaard allowed a solo homer, but was mainly victimized by soft contact. One of the hits against him was an infield single off shortstop Eric Campbell, and another snuck through the vacated second base hole on a hit-and-run.
Syndergaard escaped jams in both the third and fourth inning. In the third, Syndergaard worked out of trouble with a pair of swinging strikeouts. In the fourth, he wiggled out of a bases loaded jam by inducing a 4-6-3 double play.
Syndergaard worked a perfect fifth.
According to the announcers, Syndergaard hit 100 MPH with his second to last pitch of the game.
