The Mets hurler smacked his fifth career homer against the Cardinals. He hit a long drive to left center field, and on the warning track Cardinals center fielder Dexter Fowler looked to make the play.
Instead of making the catch, Fowler actually had the ball pop out of his glove right over the wall, giving Syndergaard the solo homer.

Syndergaard's home run cut the Cardinals' lead to 5-2 in the fourth inning.
It was second homer of the day for the Mets, as earlier in the game Pete Alonso went deep against Cardinals starter Dakota Hudson.
