Lucas Duda homered twice, and Noah Syndergaard threw 6 hit ball into the 8th inning and hit his first ML homer as the Mets pummeled the Phils 7-0. Michael Cuddyer also went long and had two hits, while Duda, Syndergaard, and Daniel Murphy had 3 hits each. BOX | RECAP

Syndergaard showed all of the potential that made him the Mets’ No.1 prospect. On the mound, Syndergaard tossed 7 1/3 shutout innings and struck out six. At the plate, he tied a franchise record for pitchers with three hits, including the first homer by a Mets pitcher in almost three years. The Mets banged 11 hits and seven runs off Phillies starter Sean O’Sullivan, who fell to 1-4. Syndergaard improved to 2-2, lowering his ERA to 2.55 through four starts.
