Noah Syndergaard did it all himself to lead the Mets to victory.

The Mets defeated the Dodgers 4-3 Wednesday mostly because Noah Syndergaard started the game. Syndergaard pitched eight solid innings, but it was his bat that had everyone talking after the game.

Syndergaard got the scoring started when he crushed a solo home run to right center off Dodgers' starter Kenta Maeda in the third.

The Mets' lead did not last for long, however. Corey Seager blasted his own solo shot in the bottom of the third tying the game at one. The Dodgers took the lead in the bottom of the fourth when Yasmani Grandal hit a home run off Syndergaard to make it 2-1 Dodgers.

Syndergaard himself was not done for the day. With runners on first and second in the fifth, the man known as Thor could not get a bunt down, so instead he crushed another home run to center to give the Mets a 4-2 lead.

Here is a closer look at the two home runs with Statcast.

Side note: your not-so-humble writer made a bold prediction at the beginning of the year that the Mets' pitchers would hit four home runs this year. Don't let me down, fellas!

On this night, even when Syndergaard hit the ball foul, it was still struck extremely hard.

The Mets' offense outside of Syndergaard failed to produce any runs despite having runners in scoring position in both the sixth and seventh innings.

The game was still 4-2 when Jeurys Familia came in to close it out in the ninth. Adrian Gonzalez led off the inning with a double and moved over to third on a groundout. Joc Pederson brought him home with another groundout that Asdrubal Cabrera made a nifty play on. Familia settled in after that striking out Yasiel Puig on three pitches, securing the victory.

After the game, manager Terry Collins was pleased with Syndergaard's performance both on the mound and at the plate.

Since this was Syndergaard's night, here is what the man himself had to say about his performance.
