Noah Syndergaard, the consensus top prospect in the Mets’ system made his triple-A debut Friday night.
He was solid: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K. Facing a maximum of 85 pitches, he threw 51 of his 76 pitches (67%) for strikes. His most impressive piece of pitching came in the fourth inning. After a walk, double and single scored a run, and put runners on second and third, Syndergaard buckled down. He struck out consecutive batters and then induced an inning-ending groundout.
