World Series Recap: Game 3
By Mike Tanchevski

The Mets found themselves in the unenviable, although all too familiar, position of being down two games to none in the World Series. The task of keeping New York’s championship hopes alive fell to Noah Syndergaard, a 23year-old right handed rookie who is 1-1 this post season with 20 strike outs in three starts.

Syndergaard got the offensive help he needed as the Mets powered their way to a 9-3 win over the Royals, to cut the Series deficit to 2-1.

David Wright and Curtis Granderson the Mets offensive catalysts, the pair accounted for two home runs, six RBI and four runs. Wright, whose first inning home run gave the Mets a 2-1 lead, was two-for-five with four runs batted in. Granderson, whose third inning homer gave the Mets the lead for good, went two-for-five with three runs scored and two runs batted in.

Kansas City hitters have had success against hard throwing pitchers all season and they proved that in their two wins at home. Syndergaard looked as if he would suffer the same fate, even after he sent a message with the game’s first pitch, a fastball that sailed over leadoff hitter Alcides Escobar’s head.

The Royals took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Eric Hosmer.  Ben Zobrist doubled and Lorenzo Cain singled to set up the scoring opportunity.

 Following Wright’s two-run blast in the bottom of the first to give New York a 2-1 lead, Syndergaard seemed to falter. Kansas City banged out four singles and took advantage of a Travis d’Arnaud passed ball to retake the lead, 3-2.

The Royals offense took the rest of the night off as Syndergaard found a rhythm and retired 11 consecutive hitters before finishing his night after six inning of work.

Syndergaard helped his own cause, leading off the bottom of the third inning with a single to right field, that set the stage for Granderson’s two-run homer over the right field wall. The home run gave New York a 4-3 edge and was the eventual game winner.

The Mets added a run in the bottom of the fourth inning on three consecutive singles by Lucas Duda, d’Arnaud and Michael Conforto, to go up 5-4.

New York worked the Royals bullpen in the home half of the sixth inning, scoring four runs on three hits, a walk, a hit batter and a sacrifice fly.

Addison Reed, Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia did not allow a Royal to reach base in their combined three inning effort to close out the Mets victory.

Syndergaard earned the win, pitching six innings and giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks with six strike outs.

Yordano Ventura continued his postseason struggles allowing five runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings of work. His poor outing forced the Royals to use six relievers in the losing effort.

New York, 30-14 all-time at home during the postseason, will send rookie, Steven Matz to the mound in game four to face Chris Young for the Royals. Young won the series opener in Kansas City, throwing 53 pitches in three innings of work.
