Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard isn't pitching like the dominant pitcher he has shown capable of being. And he knows he needs to be better.

"To be quite honest, the entire beginning of this season, my performances have been unacceptable," Syndergaard told reporters after Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Cardinals. "I have to be better. I will be better. There's no excuses for it."

The Mets (11-9) look for a series win over the Cardinals (11-9) in the rubber match of the three-game set at Busch Stadium on Sunday at 2:15 p.m. 

Mets Notes

A win Sunday would give the Mets their third series win of the season. Additionally, a win would give the Mets their 10th road win of the season, which would tie the Mariners for the league lead. ... Pete Alonso is one of two New York rookies to bash seven homers through his first 20 games. Aaron Judge did it for the Yankees in 2017. ... Brandon Nimmo has reached base safely in each of his last 10 games, batting .355 (11-31) with 10 runs, three doubles, three home runs, seven RBI, seven walks and a .487 on-base percentage. ... Jeff McNeil's 100 career hits are the most all-time through 82 games by a Met.

The Mets couldn't get things going at the plate in St. Louis on Saturday, as the Cardinals handed them a 10-2 loss. >> Box score

Five things to know about Saturday's game...

1) Chris Flexen got the spot start for the Mets in place of Jacob degrom, who was placed on the IL with a sore elbow. He didn't fare well against the Cards, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits over 4.1 innings. While he didn't record a strikeout, he allowed four walks in his outing as well.

The Mets appear to have some reason for optimism surrounding Jacob deGrom's elbow. 

After placing the right-hander on the 10-day injured list on Friday and scheduling an MRI in New York for Monday, Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters before Saturday's game against the Cardinals that deGrom may not have an MRI at all, although he will still be evaluated by doctors. 

DeGrom even long-tossed from 120 feet on Saturday and said afterward that everything "felt completely normal."

Offense from Robinson Cano, Wilson Ramos and Pete Alonso helped the Mets to early lead and they hung on for 5-4 win over the Cardinals.

After the news that Jacob deGrom will get an MRI on his elbow cast a pall over the Mets, they went out and defeated the Cardinals Friday night, 5-4. >> Box score

Six things to know about Friday's game...

1) Pete Alonso did another Pete Alonso thing in the sixth inning, crushing a solo home run 432 feet to center field with an exit velocity of 111.7 miles per hour. It turned out to be a huge homer as that put the Mets up 5-1, and their bullpen went on to give up three runs. Alonso finished 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs. He now has seven homers and 18 RBI this season.

Mets Notes

Jason Vargas tries to right the ship as he takes the hill one day earlier than expected. He was moved up from Saturday originally because Jacob deGrom had strep throat, but on Friday Mickey Callaway said deGrom would be sent for an MRI on his "barking" elbow, meaning Vargas might have more job security in the short-term. ... The Mets have lost four of their last five games. ... Since 2009, the Mets have a 10-21 record in St. Louis. ... Jeff McNeil is hitting .500 (8-for-16) with runners in scoring position, tied for fifth-best in the National League. ... Brandon Nimmo remains out of the lineup with a stiff neck but should be available to pinch-hit.

Former Yankees reliever Andrew Miller appears to be on his way to St. Louis, according to multiple reports.

The 33-year-old lefty is "very close" to signing with the Cardinals, per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, which would eliminate another potential offseason target for Yankees GM Brian Cashman.

While the Yankees have solidified their 2019 rotation after trading for James Paxton and retaining J.A. Happ, the bullpen has yet to be addressed. Last week, the team met with representatives for free agent reliever Adam Ottavino, who is reportedly high on Cashman's wish list.

Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Cardinals was difficult to swallow, especially since the Mets are now 2-4 on this road trip -- 4-7 during their last 11 games -- and have dropped three consecutive series.

Closer Jeurys Familia has blown three of his last five save opportunities. The thing is, had Juan Lagares not lost Jose Martinez's fly ball in the sun, the Mets win the game, 3-2. Instead, Tommy Pham scored to tie the game, Paul Sewald ran out of gas in the 13th inning and the Mets eventually lose.

Collins left the game late in the second quarter on a hit on Arizona's D.J. Foster. One play after he was taken out of the game, Drew Stanton threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald that gave the Cardinals a 10-0 lead.

Daily News Live: Stanton suitors 00:03:01
The Daily News Live crew discusses Giancarlo Stanton's decision to name the Yankees as one of four teams he would like to be traded to.

The Yankees are among four teams that Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton would approve a trade to, according to Sirius XM's Craig Mish.

The other three teams include the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros, according to Mish, who also notes Stanton's "desire to win has been greatly understated."

Stanton, the subject of trade rumors over the past few weeks as the Marlins reportedly look to cut $65 million from their payroll next season, has a no-trade clause in his 13-year, $325 million contract, and has not approved a trade to the San Francisco Giants or St. Louis Cardinals, two teams who have heavily pursued acquiring the 28-year-old MVP.

The Marlins have already reportedly agreed on the "general framework" in a deal with the Cardinals and Giants, and Stanton had met with both clubs, according to Mish, however it is unclear where they stand.

Bird, who entered the game with a .038 batting average, was a triple shy of the cycle, hitting a two-run home run in the bottom of the second inning after Aaron Judge's home run was overturned on replay to break a 1-1 tie.

Judge went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple. He hit a ball to deep right field off Adam Wainwright (0-3) that deflected off a fan's glove and back onto the field. Umpires reviewed the play and ruled fan interference, resulting in a triple.

"Anything that can help the team win, it feels great," De Aza said after the game. "It's fun to do that now, and every time you can. Every time you hit a home run, it's fun."

New York Mets RHP Jeurys Familia blew his first save since last July when he allowed two runs in the ninth inning in a 5-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday at Citi Field.

Familia (2-2), who had saved 52 straight regular-season opportunities, the third-best streak in MLB history, allowed a game-tying RBI double to Yadier Molins and go-ahead RBI double to Kolten Wong that turned a 4-3 Mets lead into a 5-4 deficit.

"This is really a tough one to take," manager Terry Collins told reporters after of the game. "When you come back on Adam Wainwright and have a chance to win the game, that's a pretty big night. And then to have your closer, who just has been lights out, give up two, that's a little tougher to take."

Collins on World Series Game 1 00:11:45
Mets manager Terry Collins discusses the Royals' pitching, Tuesday's weather and the Mets' confidence going into Game 1 of the World Series.

Mets manager Terry Collins talked to media before Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday and said…

MLB has said Game 1 is expected to start on time, though he has no issue if they want to start the game under a light rain.

In the event tonight's game is delayed by rain, and it impacts Matt Harvey's start, Jon Niese or Bartolo Colon would be quickly called upon in relief.

Two Giant defenders left Sunday's?25-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals early due to injury. Middle linebacker and team captain, Jon Beason, along with slot cornerback, Walter Thurmond.

Beason left the game in the third quarter with an apparent foot injury. He was later seen leaving the stadium with a walking boot on his right foot, the same one that caused him to miss most of the preseason. Beason underwent X-Rays before departing, but results were undisclosed. The Giants would only say they will know more about Beason's condition after an MRI on Monday.

Thurmond pulled himself midway through the game due to a pain in his pectoral muscle. When asked about the injury, Thurmond replied?"I was erring on the side of caution."

Is this the week? Is this the game the Giants' finally put something together?

We'll see. The fans will be out in full force to help push the Giants along vs the Cardinals, who may be playing without QB Carson Palmer, who has "a never thing" going on in his shoulder and hasn't thrown a football since Monday. ?If Palmer cannot play, Drew Stanton will get the call. The latest is that Palmer is "50-50" to play today.

The Giants seemed like the logical pick last week but were instead embarrassed. The Chargers also looked bad against the Buccaneers, while the Seahawks and Rams both covered.

Here are this week?s picks. The Giants will have their bye this week. I?ll be using the point spreads from Yahoo! Sports. Feel free to include your picks for these or any other of the week?s games in the comments section. Good luck!

In a game very reminiscent of their Super Bowl victory in Phoenix, the Giants staged a great fourth quarter comeback down 10 points with just over five minutes to go. Eli looked like his old self and the defense made key stops when it had to.

So, without further ado, lets break down the good, the bad and the ugly.

The Good

- After watching Ken Whisenhunt's decision making late in the game, I think Tom Coughlin looked great in comparison. First Whisenhunt decided to waste a challenge on a play in which Antonio Smith was out of bounds or down four times before crossing the goal line. It was one of the easiest challenge calls I have ever seen a ref have to make. Then late in the game, Wisenhunt decided not to call a time out on fourth and two with the game on the line. The result was a quick slant to Larry Fitzgerald that Corey Webster easily batted away. I wonder if Whisenhunt would have used a timeout and drawn up a better play had he not wasted one on the misguided challenge. "Tommy Challenge," he is not.

- Whether or not you think Cruz' play should have been ruled a fumble, dropping the ball the way he did was a boneheaded move. After the game, his excuse was that he thought he was touched. I've seen the replay a number of times, and I can't imagine how he could have felt someone touch him, as all of the defenders were about a yard off when he went down. To me, it looked like he did give himself up, so I think the correct ruling was made, but had it gone the other way, no Giants fan would blame the ref; they would be screaming at Cruz. It's not that hard to just hold on to the ball until the whistle blows.

Having said all that, Cruz' six catch, 98 yard performance was great to see, on the heels of his huge day in Philadelphia. Manning is getting more and more comfortable with Cruz, as evidenced by his big reception on the final drive. Back to back big games lead me to believe that Cruz is not just a flash in the pan, although I wouldn't expect to see him put up numbers like this every game. Until Cruz gets the starting nod over a healthy Mario Manningham, #82 is still the #2 receiver moving forward. With Hakeem Nicks looking like a top five receiver, both Manningham and Cruz will have the opportunity to make plays.

All week we heard about the great receiver we going to witness in the Giants-Cardinals game. His name is Larry Fitzgerald and he is possibly headed to the Hall of Fame.

On the Giants' sideline, they have superstar of their own. His name is Hakeem Nicks. Yesterday, he did what Arizona fans are accustomed to what Fitzgerald usually does.

Fitzgerald had eight catches for 102 yards, his longest a 47 yarder. Nicks caught the game-winning score: a 29-yarder from Eli Manning with under three minutes remaining. He also caught nine other passes for 133 yards.
