Game Recap: Syndergaard Looks Solid in 1-0 Loss to Marlins

The New York Mets and their travel lineup lost to the Miami Marlins by a score of 1-0 today at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida.

Pitching 

The star of the day was Noah Syndergaard. He came out firing 98-100 yet again and was supposedly working on his off-speed stuff more. He gave up a run in the first after deflecting a ball into the outfield for a Justin Bour RBI. He settled in and retired seven straight to finish up his day.

“Thor” looked good again and just like the pitcher we saw last April before his lat injury. There’s really no question that if he takes the mound every five days for the Mets, then he is going to be a difference maker.

Here is Syndergaard talking to reporters following his outing:

He was relieved by Paul Sewald who turned in a scoreless inning. Jeurys Familia pitched his third scoreless inning of the Spring. AJ Ramos also added in his own scoreless appearance. Chris Flexen pitched two scoreless and has looked much better his last few outings. I for one am looking forward to a fully developed Flexen in 2018.

Offense

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 while also DH-ing. Juan Lagares added a single too (a line drive single, I might add), his first of the Spring.

The bigger news was Amed Rosario leaving the game with a knee issue. He talked to reporters after the game and said it happened while rounding third base. He was not too concerned.

On Deck

Steven Matz takes the ball for New York at First Data Field while facing the Nationals. The game will be at 1:10 p.m. and can be seen on WPIX.
