The Mets used power pitching and power hitting to earn a 5-3 win over the Giants Wednesday night in Citi Field.
Noah Syndergaard earned his team-leading ninth win by going six strong innings. He allowed just one walk and totaled six strikeouts in the game. And the Giants did not have a single stolen base while Syndergaard was in the game.
The Mets broke out the long ball in this game, hitting three home runs. Dominic Smith got his first extra-base hit this year in Citi Field when he crushed a ball into the upper deck in the second inning. Jose Bautista also went yard, as did Todd Frazier. It was the 15th game this season where the Mets hit at least three homers. They’re 10-5 in those games.
Mickey Callaway channeled his inner Terry Collins, as he played the matchup game in both the seventh and ninth innings. Paul Sewald got the final two outs in the ninth to earn his first major league save. He becomes the fourth guy to close out a win for the Mets since the trade of Jeurys Familia.
The Mets have now won four of their last five games
