A SHAKY 3-PLUS INNINGS BY SYNDERGAARD SEALED PHILS FATE

By Peter Marx

Noah Syndergaard was charged with two runs in three-plus innings in the Phils loss to the Astros in Game 5 of the World Series.

Syndergaard struck out four without giving up a walk.

It looked like it was going to be a long night for the 30-year-old — or a short one, really — as he gave up a leadoff double to Jose Altuve that saw Altuve advance to third on an error, and Jeremy Peña drove in a run with a single.

He got through the next two innings without issue, but Peña swatted a solo blast to lead off the fourth to end Syndergaard’s night.

Because he only threw 44 pitches, it’s possible he could pitch in reliever if necessary over the weekend.
