DPD: A Trio of Aces and a Super Nova

It’s another pretty solid slate on this baseball Tuesday, as we’ve got a trio of aces in isolation going with a duo that has been low-key impressive, as well. Check ’em out! Aces in Isolation Noah Syndergaard (NYM) versus Washington’s A.J. Cole Thor gritted and gutted through 95 pitches last time out, grabbing seven strikeouts with four walks against the Reds.
