Last night in Binghamton, Mets top prospect Noah Syndergaard allowed only three hits with no walks and ten strikeouts in five innings for the B-Mets.
“I wasn’t really tallying the strikeouts I had, I was just pitching. … I just feel like I had all my pitches going for me tonight,” Syndergaard said, according to Lynn Worthy of the Binghamton Press and Sun-Bulletin. “It’s a lot of fun to pitch when you’ve got the fastball, curveball, and changeup going for you.”
Syndergaard has walked just three batters while striking out 33 batters in 26 innings over his last five starts – he has allowed only three earned runs during that span.
Syndergaard is approaching his innings limit for 2013, and so the Mets are limiting the number of innings he throws during his starts – Worthy says Syndergaard’s next start will be skipped as a result and will pitch again on August 28.
Overall, Syndergaard is 6-0 with a 1.59 ERA with just ten walks and 64 strikeouts in 51 innings over ten starts since being promoted to Double-A Binghamton.
