Noah Syndergaard impresses from both sides of the diamond in a 1-0 victory over the Reds.

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Coming into a game where he needed to assure fans that he could still be the Noah Syndergaard of old, Thor did just that in a 1-0 victory over the Reds. With his shutout, Syndergaard became the first Mets pitcher to throw a complete-game shutout since a guy named Noah Syndergaard did it last September. In an impressive display of dominance, he struck out ten Reds and only allowed four hits in his nine innings of work.

If you’re wondering where the Mets only run of the game came from, well that was also Noah Syndergaard’s doing. In the third inning, Syndergaard drove Tyler Mahle’s pitch over the great wall of Flushing to give the Mets the 1-0 lead that he held for the rest of the day. As the game ended, Syndergaard became the first pitcher in Mets history to pitch a complete-game shutout and hit a home run accounting for the only run of the game.

To put the cherry on top, the Flushing faithful got one last chance to wave goodbye to Jesse Winker as he was tossed in the ninth inning after arguing balls and strikes.

Full recap to follow.
