Syndergaard Brings The Heat, Rivera and Gomez Lead Offense For St. Lucie
St. Lucie 3, Bradenton 4
The Florida sun wasn’t the only thing bringing the heat down in Bradenton this evening. Noah Syndergaard made his second start for St. Lucie, and was giving the sun a run for his money after having his fastball clocked in the mid-90s during tonight’s loss. Syndergaard pitched five innings, surrendering two runs before turning the reigns over to Estarlin Morel. More than half of Syndergaard’s outs came from his eight strikeouts. The one eye sore was Syndergaard’s four walks, but due to his eight strikeouts, his strikeout to walk ratio was still excellent.
Offensively, the Mets were led by T.J. Rivera and Gilbert Gomez who both had two hits on the night. St. Lucie jumped out to an early two run lead in the top of the first inning, but they were unable to hang on to it. They scored a run in the seventh to jump back out in front, but Bradenton scored a pair of their own runs in the bottom half of the inning, and never let go of that one run lead. Morel picked up the loss for St. Lucie, after giving up two runs on four hits. Cam Maron, Matt Reynolds and Travis Taijeron also added hits for the Mets in the loss.
- T.J. Rivera: 2-for-4, R, RBI
- Gilbert Gomez: 2-for-3
- Matt Reynolds: 1-for-4, 2B, RBI
- Noah Syndergaard: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 8 K
