Noah Syndergaard: He can hit, too

Noah Syndergaard showed off some of his batting power he exhibited during his stint with the Las Vegas 51's on Thursday. 

In the 4th inning, he launched a solo homerun over the center field wall, travelling over 425 feet, to extend the Mets lead to 5-0.  On the power of his 7 1/3rd innings pitched, he help lead the Mets to a series sweep over the Philadelphia Phillies, winning the Thursday matinee 7-0.

He complimented his long bomb with a pair of singles to give him a 3-for-3 day.  His performance at the plate gives Terry Collins another option on the bench in a pinch hitter situation, as he will opt to go for a six man pitching rotation when Dillon Gee returns from the disabled list.

The Mets are off on Thursday as they get ready to host the Miami Marlins for a three game weekend series before heading west to San Diego and Phoenix for their first of two west coast trips this season.  Matt Harvey will take to the mound on Friday in the series-opener, which gets under way at 7:10PM.
