The Mets (16-15, 1.5 games behind the Phillies in the NL East) split a four-game series with the Reds, thanks to a historic outing by Noah Syndergaard. Now, they prepare to face the Brewers for a three-game series beginning Friday in Milwaukee.
Here's what went down Thursday, in case you missed it:
Syndergaard homered for the Mets' only run, then threw a complete-game shutout as the Mets salvaged a series split with a 1-0 win over the Reds.
No, Thursday's home run wasn't the first time Syndergaard homered this season.
How impressive was Syndergaard's performance? He became the first pitcher in 36 years -- and the eighth in MLB history -- to throw a complete game and hit a solo home run as the only run of the game.
Syndergaard entered Thursday with a 6.35 ERA. So how did he right the ship so quickly? SNY's Andy Martino breaks it down.
After Reds outfielder Jesse Winker waved to fans in Wednesday's game, Mets fans repaid the favor on Thursday after he got ejected.
First baseman Pete Alonso was named National League Rookie of the Month.
Should the Mets pursue free-agent starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel after the draft so they don't forfeit a pick as compensation, they may have a lot more competition.
However, they are having "continued dialogue" with free-agent reliever Craig Kimbrel.
One of the Mets' top prospects is an 18-year-old who is already rising up the ranks in the minors and found out he was drafted from a Buffalo Wild Wings. Meet Simeon Woods Richardson.
