Final Score: Mets 7, Phillies 0—Hammer Time

The Mets ride the lightning to a sweep of the Phillies.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Noah Syndergaard had the best game of his young big league career, throwing seven-and-one-third scoreless innings, scattering six hits, striking out six, and walking none. Somehow he was actually more impressive with a bat in his hands, as he went 3-for-3 with his first career home run, a blast which landed in the neighborhood of 425 feet from home plate.

Syndergaard wasn't the only one playing long ball this afternoon, either. Lucas Duda ripped two solo home runs, and Michael Cuddyer crushed a two-run second-deck job as the Mets rapped 12 hits.  Daniel Murphy continued his torrid hitting, going 3-for-4 with an RBI. Syndergaard became the first pitcher in Mets history with at least five strikeouts in each of his first four starts and the first Mets pitcher to hit a home run since 2012.

With their second three-game sweep of Philadelphia at home this year, the Mets improved to 8-1 against their cellar-dwelling rivals and now will face the free-falling Marlins for a three-game set starting Friday night with Matt Harvey on the hill.
