The Meccas started a masterful start from Noah Sindergaard to go to waste, but they struggled to win 5-2 in 11 innings. >> Box box
Six takeoffs from Tuesday's game
1) Noah Syndergaard was stellar and at times completely unintelligible, especially at the beginning of the game. He went through the first four innings on only 41 pitches and allowed one major start, a third inning walk to Yolmer Sanchez . He finished the game with only five assists over 7.1 innings, giving up just one run. He also scored 11 straight seasons. If this was Syndergaard's last start with the Mets, it was great.
2) Syndergaard quit the runner game at second and third by one distance. After Justin Wilson allowed a rebellion to fall for a single, the White Sox have bases loaded with one out and progress moving into the second. Seth Lugo came out on the clutch, forcing Jose Abreu into a 5-4-3 double play to end the threat.
3) Edwin Diaz failed to hold a one-run lead in the ninth inning. After allowing a walk in the lead, Diaz dug up two wild pieces and eventually allowed the tying run to Tim Anderson fly, sending the game to extra passes. Diaz was tagged with his fifth ashes of the season for 28 opportunities.
4 ) The Bullets regained the lead in the top of the 1
5) The Mets went 2-0 on a pair of RBI groundings, one by Tomasz Nido in the second inning and another by Robinson Kano in fifth. They consistently threatened but failed to miss more runs, going 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position.
6) Amed Rosario collected four hits for his first multi-hit game since July 20. However, managing to tie them together, Rosario still has hits in six of his last eight games.
And good night.
