Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard gave up two hits, while striking out 10 of 25 batters, through seven scoreless innings during Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Giants.
"I've got to rank this one tonight as good as any under the circumstances," Terry Collins said of Syndergaard, who took a no-hitter in to the sixth inning. "He stepped up when we needed him. He stepped up last year when we needed him. He's grown so much, even though he's still very, very young, he's grown so much and matured so much as a pitcher. He's going to be really, really good."
Syndergaard threw 25 pitches in the fourth inning, 19 in the sixth inning and 18 in the seventh, finishing his night with 108 pitches thrown. Bumgarner, by contrast, threw just 21 pitches through the first three innings.
