Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard hit a 415-foot moonshot to rightfield off Diamondbacks hurler Braden Shipley to put New York ahead 3–1 in the fifth inning on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old now has three dingers on the season, after he hit two in a game against the Dodgers in May, to go with two doubles and a single. He brought his average up to .140.
Check out the sweet uppercut, and flawless follow-through from Thor.
According to Statcast, the ball left Syndergaard’s bat at 108.2 mph which makes the homer the second-hardest hit this season.
A few more of these and the Mets will make up some ground in the National League East.
