Mets hurler Noah Syndergaard allowed one run on two hits over five innings and struck out seven during a rehab start Sunday to help lead the Cyclones to victory over the Evil Empire, breaking a five-game losing streak.
After a challenging first inning, in which Syndergaard walked two batters and give up a run on a wild pitch, the righty from Texas settled in and kept the Evil Empire at bay.
“The first inning was a little rough,” said Syndergaard, who is currently recovering from a strained ligament in his index finger. “But I feel like I got in a good rhythm and a good groove as the game went on.”
Jose Miguel Medina broke a 1–1 tie in the eighth when he singled to drive in Nick Meyer, who had singled and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt.
Brooklyn had tied it up in the third after Medina doubled to drive in Brian Sharp, who had walked and moved to second on a bunt.
After yesterday’s victory, our boys are back in second place of the New York-Penn League, with a 12–11 record. The Cyclones and Yankees are now tied for the “Battle of the Bridge,” each having won four games against the other this season.
The Clones hope to keep it going tonight on the Rock at 7 pm.
