Syn­der­gaard gets nod for Game 2

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Noah Syn­der­gaard ar­rived at Citi Field on Satur­day and was sum­moned by Mets Man­ager Terry Collins. “He just called me into his of­fice and asked how I was feel­ing af­ter my re­lief ap­pear­ance,” the rookie pitcher ex­plained. “My body and my arm have never felt bet­ter. So that’s what I told him, and I’m ready to go.” A 23-year-old righthander who made his big league de­but in mid-May, Syn­der­gaard will start for New York in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs and Jake Ar­ri­eta on Sun­day night. Syn­der­gaard al­lowed three runs in 61/3 in­nings in Game 2 of the NLDS at Los An­ge­les last week­end, los­ing on a night that turned when Chase Ut­ley broke Ruben Te­jada’s leg with a take­out slide at sec­ond. Syn­der­gaard then threw 17 pitches in the sev­enth in­ning Thurs­day against the Dodgers in the fi­nal game of the se­ries, the first re­lief ap­pear­ance of his big league ca­reer.
