Two Mets Win Weekly Honor
August 4, 2015
The New York Mets find themselves on the top of the NL East thanks in large part to two of their players. Both first baseman Lucas Duda and pitcher Noah Syndergaard have been named the National League Player of the Week. The last time two Mets shared this honor was in 2006 with David Wright and Jose Reyes.
In the last seven days, Duda has hit 7 home runs, driven in 10 runs, and walked 4 times. He batted .391 in 23 at-bats. In the first three days of August, he's had 3 home runs and 5 RBIs for a batting average of .455.
Syndergaard, who had his first major league start on May 12, 2015, has proven to be a valuable addition to an already strong starting rotation. In 15 games so far this season, he has a 2.66 ERA. He pitched 8.0 innings in each of his last two starts and he struck out 9 batters in each game. He had a shutout in eight innings on July 28th and he gave up just 3 hits that day. In his last start on August 2nd, he gave up seven hits and 2 runs.
