Mets Blast Cardinals In Callaway's Debut As Manager

  • Noah Syndergaard correctly believes Opening Day should be a national holiday

Mickey Callaway's first game as a manager with the Mets went exactly according to plan.

It is the second consecutive Opening Day start for Syndergaard, a second opportunity to set the tone for a new Mets season. "This is a different place than most".

Syndergaard (1-0) worked six frames, striking out 10 and allowing four runs on six hits. The five-time All-Star first baseman was signed for the major league minimum during the offseason after struggling with a bad back a year ago with the Dodgers.

While this day often brings optimism that sometimes isn't warranted, there is reason to expect big things from both of New York's baseball teams.

"I think it's pretty crucial for us to come out of the gates hot and prove to a lot of people we are here to compete, and we're going to have a hell of a year", Syndergaard told reporters at Citi Field following a team workout ahead of Thursday's opener.

The team picked the flawless day to show off its new gesture after smacking 12 hits against the Cardinals and scoring nine runs in the first game of the 2018 season.

New York's wealth (and hopes for this season) rests in the starting rotation as Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey and Steven Matz are all healthy and ready to shut down the National League. Martinez wasn't too good in the middle innings, either, at least the middle innings he pitched. New Met Adrian Gonzalez plated fellow new Met Todd Frazier with a double to give the Mets a 4-3 lead with one out.

Cespedes, who had a two-run single in the second, chased Carlos Martinez with an RBI single.

The Mets broke the game open in the fifth inning, sending 10 hitters to the plate and scoring five times.

It isn't known when Holland will be ready to join the team, having missed all of spring training, and it could be hard for him to find a place to get into games in the next week.
