Noah Syndergaard will be on the mound for the Mets on Sunday and he will be looking for his third win without a defeat yet this year. "Thor" struck out eleven over 5 and 1/3 innings, yielding a run on two hits. The Mets scored what proved to be the decisive runs in the fifth, when Jay Bruce delivered an RBI double and Adrian Gonzalez lofted a sacrifice fly before Bruce raced home on a wild pitch to give NY a 6-2 lead.
Brandon Nimmo tied the game at two in the sixth with a solo shot of his own. Game one starters are Zach Wheeler (1-0, 1.29) and Gio Gonzalez (1-1, 2.20).
