PHILADELPHIA, April 19 (UPI) -- Tall Texan Noah Syndergaard literally made an impression on catcher Kevin Plawecki Monday.

During the Mets' 5-2 victory, Syndergaard fired off a pitch that Plawecki was forced to block. After the game, SNY TV's Steve Gelbs tweeted a picture, showing the damage to Plawecki's chest. Plawecki had a deep red impression of his cross necklace on his skin.

"How hard does Syndergaard throw? Plawecki blocked a pitch w/ his chest. There's now an imprint where his necklace was," Gelbs tweeted.

Syndergaard had eight strikeouts in seven innings for the Mets. The 23-year-old was drafted by Toronto, before being traded in a deal for R.A. Dickey.
