Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard singlehandedly beat the Reds on Thursday afternoon. There was no need for the bullpen or the hitters to show up.
Syndergaard went all 9 innings, striking out 10. He also hit a solo home run for the Mets only run in the 1-0 victory.

It’s not everyday that you see a pitcher take care of things on the mound and at the plate. In fact, the 1-0 shutout with the pitcher providing the only run by way of a home run has only been done seven times.
The last time a pitcher accomplished the feat was back in 1983 when Dodgers pitcher Bob Welch did it. Not bad for a guy they call Thor.
