Dodgers News: Noah Syndergaard Reacts to First Win With LA

It’s been a long time coming for Dodgers RHP Noah Syndergaard. Syndergaard finally picked up his first win of the season yesterday against the St Louis Cardinals, 6-3. It wasn’t the best of outings for Noah, but the offesne did enough for him, and he did enough to keep his squad within striking distance.

Six starts later, and he gets the win. After the game, Syndergaard told Dodgers field reporter Kirsten Watson that it was nice to just get a team win.

“Yeah, it feels really nice to get the first win out of the way,” Syndergaard said. “All in all, I think it was a really good team win today, really nice series to finish off a sweep. As far as what was going for me, I think I just did a pretty good job of keeping them off balance.”

On top of Noah’s win, they pick up their third consecutive win; their third three-game winning streak this season. The Dodgers seem to be rolling, and LA skipper Dave Roberts hopes to keep that up as they have seemed to find something.

“We’re starting to feel it a little bit,” Roberts said of the Dodgers building momentum. “I think this series with the bullpen – when you can get a lead and finish a game, that certainly adds to the momentum. I think offensively, getting some guys back on our roster, it just looks better. And guys are starting to get a little bit more comfortable.”

Overall, Syndergaard is now 1-3 with a 6.32 ERA and has looked good in three of his last four outings.

It’s fitting that Noah got his first win at home, as he seems to be more comfortable at Dodger Stadium. He’s pitched in 31 innings this season, and 23 of those innings are at home, he has 21 strikeouts, and 17 of those came at home, and he’s allowed less than half of his runs at home as well.

There is no place like home, and no one fits that mantra like Thor this season.
