That was all Yankees Starter Michael Pineda needed to see as the Yanks starter went into the 6th with a shutout scattering four hits and four strikeouts. Syndergaard would settle down and waiting for the Amazins' Offense for a frame or two of "Pick me Up" there was trouble looming in the 6th.
With a man on and Yankees back stop "Bob the Builder" McCann up he takes Syndergaard deep for a two-run blast and that rolled the credits on a Mets Offense that now had to go through the likes of Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller...not happening!
Syndergaard takes the "L" (8-7) as he had five runs on seven hits on his tab through six. Pineda moves to 11-8 in masterful work knowing if he can get a lead with some added insurance that back end won't fail.
Yanks move to 81-66 and the Mets fall to 84-64 with the "Rubber Game" on ESPN's Sunday Night Hardball...
