Milwaukee Brewers

Noah Syndergaard Strikes Out Eight Consecutive Brewers

Published

on

When healthy, New York Mets flamethrower Noah Syndergaard is one of the most electric pitchers in all of baseball.

On Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers, Syndergaard displayed why, as he struck out eight consecutive batters between the second and fourth innings (outs 5-12).

Syndergaard’s victims in order were Orlando Arcia, Jett Bandy, Jhoulys Chacin, Jonathan Villar, Eric Thames, Lorenzo Cain, Travis Shaw, and Domingo Santana; Villar was the only one to go down looking.

The 6’6” righty struck out 11 hitters on the afternoon in 5 1/3 innings.

Syndergaard fell two strikeouts shy of tying Tom Seaver’s franchise and Major League record of 10 straight Ks.

Through four starts this season, Syndergaard is 2-0 with a 2.95 ERA and 33 strikeouts.

If Syndergaard is able to remain healthy this season (he was limited to just seven starts in 2017), expect him to be right in the mix for National League Cy Young contention as the end of the year approaches.

It appears that the New York Yankees aren’t done addressing their rotation following their trade with the Toronto Blue Jays for J.A. Happ, who turned in a brilliant debut performance in their win over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.

According to Fancred’s Jon Heyman, the Yankees are among a few teams that are interested in New York Mets starter Zack Wheeler.

Among the Yankees, the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies, and Milwaukee Brewers are also reportedly interested.

Wheeler’s name has been popping up after he has posted a 3.20 ERA over his past 11 starts.

While his 4.11 ERA for the season still looks shaky, he has shown solid improvement during his recent hot streak.

The Baltimore Orioles have a deal in place involving shortstop Manny Machado and are working through the specifics, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.

While the team has not been identified, both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies have been diligent, while the Milwaukee Brewers, New York Yankees, and Arizona Diamondbacks have also been linked to a trade for Machado.

Philadelphia was the “most likely destination” for Machado because of the Phillies’ willingness to include pitching prospect Adonis Medina, according to MLB.com on Monday.

Machado addressed the media Monday and discussed the trade rumors.

“The only thing I’ve ever known has been the Orioles organization,” he said. “They drafted me, I came up with them, played with them. So I don’t know anything different.”
