I’m one of the people that believes that the All-Star can throw you off a little if you’re a pitcher…and I’d like to believe that’s what happened to Noah Syndergaard when he pitched for Binghamton today. He didn’t look like himself and was plagued with command issues, but he still got through five innings while allowing just three earned runs — and he did strike out five as well. His final line was 5.0 IP, 7 H, 2 HR, 3 BB, 3 ER, 5 K, with a 55:43 strike-to-ball ratio. Syndergaard always seems to strike out a handful even on days when he isn’t completely on his game, which is testament to how good his stuff is naturally. Both of the home runs he gave up were solo shots, which weren’t that bad in the grand scheme, although the second one was an absolute bomb to center field. He was dancing in and out of trouble today, and there are positives to be taken from that too — considering he kept his composure throughout those situations. He gave up a home run to Ryan Lollis to lead-off the ballgame
