Noah Syndergaard was back on the mound for the New York Mets and made it clear he wants to stay.

With his name bandied about in trade talk ahead of the July 31 deadline Youth Tyler Pitlick Jersey , Syndergaard pitched out of trouble during a rusty return from the disabled list and helped himself with an RBI single as New York beat the Washington Nationals 4-2 on Friday night.

”If they wanted to trade me tomorrow, I really have no say in what they do,” Syndergaard said. ”I can’t say it enough – love my time being a New York Met. I love the city, I love embracing it, I think they’ve embraced me.

”I said last year I wanted to be a Met my entire career. But like I said, that’s outside of my control.”

Amed Rosario tripled and doubled, both times over Bryce Harper’s head in center field, and the Mets won for only the sixth time in their last 26 home games. Brandon Nimmo had three hits for New York, which built a three-run cushion in the first inning against struggling starter Tanner Roark.

Matt Adams homered for the inconsistent Nationals, who went 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position and fell back to .500 at 47-47.

After missing seven weeks with a strained ligament in his right index finger, Syndergaard (5-1) came out firing 99 mph fastballs. But he gave up seven hits in five innings and never retired the leadoff batter.

Still, the 2016 All-Star held the Nationals to one run while striking out three and walking two.

”I thought he was really good,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. ”He did a tremendous job.”

Wilmer Difo made things easier on New York by running into the first out of the third inning at third base. Syndergaard then retired Anthony Rendon and struck out Harper with two on to limit damage.

”I felt pretty good,” Syndergaard said. ”A step in the right direction. It’s encouraging. I came out of it healthy and that’s all that matters.”

Difo had doubled to drive in Roark, who opened the inning with the first triple by a Washington pitcher since Joel Hanrahan in 2007.

Syndergaard also got Harper to ground into an inning-ending double play with two aboard in the fifth. Perhaps frustrated after hitting the ball hard right to Rosario at shortstop, Harper didn’t hustle down the line.

”That’s a conversation that Bryce and I will have tomorrow. Yeah, he didn’t run that ball out the way I want him to Yanni Gourde Jersey ,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. ”Look, I’ve got no beef with Bryce. I mean, Bryce comes every day to play.”

Syndergaard, making his first major league start since May 25, was pulled after 75 pitches. The right-hander threw 71 in a rehab outing Sunday for Class A Brooklyn.

”It felt great getting back out there today in a competition setting and on a big league mound,” he said. ”It’s a funny thing with fingers. Kind of need those, pretty important to pitch. I’m just happy to be back out there and healthy.”

Seth Lugo overcame a wild start to his relief outing and worked two hitless innings. Robert Gsellman gave up Adams’ second-deck shot in the eighth but got six outs for his fourth save.

Roark (3-12) settled in after a rough start but allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings. He and Baltimore right-hander Alex Cobb are tied for the most losses in the majors.

Roark has lost his last five starts and is 0-6 since beating Tampa Bay on June 6. Washington has dropped his past seven starts and nine of the last 10.

”Keep going, keep plugging away, keep fighting and scratching – whatever it takes,” said Roark, who gave up singles to his first three batters. ”We battled today. Tough loss.”

Jose Bautista and Devin Mesoraco each had an RBI single in the first, sandwiched around Wilmer Flores‘ sacrifice fly. Rosario tripled off the center-field wall to open the second and scored when a smiling Syndergaard lined a single to right field.

”I think I surprised myself a little bit,” Syndergaard said.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Nationals: RHP Koda Glover is scheduled to pitch Saturday for Class A Potomac after his rehab assignment was moved up from the rookie-level Gulf Coast League. The reliever has been sidelined all season by right shoulder tendinitis and will probably require eight or nine appearances before he’s ready to come off the disabled list, Martinez said.

Mets: OF Yoenis Cespedes (right hip flexor) ran the bases at the team’s complex in Florida and was scheduled to do so again Friday, according to Callaway. ”He came out of it really good. He feels good and is progressing,” Callaway said. Cespedes has been out since mid-May. … LHP Jason Vargas (strained right calf) is set to make another rehab start for Brooklyn on Saturday.

ROSTER MOVE

To open a spot for Syndergaard, the Mets optioned LHP P.J. Conlon to Triple-A Las Vegas.

UP NEXT

Nationals RHP Austin Voth makes his major league debut Saturday against Zack Wheeler (2-6 Adolphus Washington Jersey , 4.42 ERA) and the Mets. The 26-year-old Voth, a fifth-round draft pick in 2013 out of Washington, was 4-5 with a 3.55 ERA at Triple-A Syracuse. Wheeler, pitching in some poor luck, is 0-5 over 13 outings since his last win April 29 at San Diego. That’s the longest stretch without a win for a Mets starter since 1998. The right-hander is 2-8 in 11 career starts against Washington, including 0-6 with a 5.71 ERA in six games at home.




INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck traipses across the locker room with a little extra pep in his step these days.

It’s obvious from the smile that the Indianapolis Colts‘ starting quarterback is content to put on his shoulder pads, prepare for practice and get ready to make his first regular-season start in more than 20 months.

Sure, there were times Luck questioned when or even if this day would come, whether he could regain the Pro Bowl form from his first three pro seasons after shoulder surgery and whether those regular pregame jitters he craves would again be part of his game-day routine.

Now, just a few days away from facing Cincinnati’s defense, Luck looks and sounds like the confident leader everyone expects him to be this season.

“I think everybody knows how great a quarterback he is. He’s been out for a little while so I think they’re probably waiting to see if he’s back, healthy, ready to go,” kicker Adam Vinatieri said. “Everything that we’ve seen this offseason through minicamp, training camp tells me he’s ready to rock and roll and be the Andrew we all know he can be.”

Luck understands just how heavily scrutinized these first few games will be.

He anticipates a litany of questions about his health, the subtle changes he’s made to his throwing motion after working out with former major league pitcher Tom House, his ability to bounce up after big hits and whether using the sidelines and baseball slides will change his approach to the game.

After all Kyle Long Jersey , it was the hit he took from behind in the third preseason game that caused a minor foot injury that forced him out of two practices last week. But the fact he is talking about his foot rather than lingering pain in his right shoulder certainly is a sign of progress.

“Certainly not as smooth (a recovery) as you’d like,” he said Wednesday, referring to his recovery from the surgery on a partially torn labrum in January 2017. “There have been hiccups and there have been challenges and hurdles to go over and frustrating times, and as a team, too. But I feel like we’ve always managed to find a way through it.”

The darkest moments appeared to come after Luck shut down his throwing regimen and went on injured reserve last fall.

He spent several weeks seeking additional opinions to determine whether a second procedure was necessary. Once assured nothing was structurally wrong, Luck headed to the Netherlands in November where he worked for more than a month working with a trusted trainer in relative anonymity.

When he returned to the team complex in late December, Luck was clearly a frustrated man.

“There was a time, probably a couple weeks into being away from here, in early December that was pretty difficult for me to sort of see the positive in things,” he said on Dec. 29. “You get a little emotionally tired. I am, I think, a little emotionally tired from the whole process. But that’s all right.”

Teammates understood.

“It’s a lonely feeling in this league when you get hurt and you can’t be out there with your teammates, for your coaches, for your fans,” tight end Jack Doyle said. “So when I think he got back around us and practicing and just playing football again, you really saw him come back to normal, I guess.”

It took more than five months to see actual results.

Luck resumed throwing footballs in May Youth Matt Duchene Jersey , a secret he kept by swearing first-year coach Frank Reich to silence.

Then, on the second day of Indy’s three-day minicamp Luck made a surprise return and began flinging footballs around the practice field for the first time since October.

Suddenly, the conversations changed throughout the city.

Reich and general manager Chris Ballard outlined a training camp plan that called for Luck to mimic his regular-season routine by throwing three times per week in non-game settings.

Luck’s brief appearance in the preseason opener at Seattle eased most doubts about whether he’d start the season opener.

His ability to survive big hits in each of the first three preseason games proved to fans, coaches and critics he was healthy. And if any additional assurances were needed, teammates found them in Luck’s demeanor on and off the field.

“Seeing him finally come out in camp and just have that confidence back, it really is a lot of fun,” center Ryan Kelly said. “Being able to laugh and joke around, I’m sure a year ago even if he had been playing he didn’t have that in him. So it’s kind of like a reset button for him and it’s fun.”

Now Luck must deal with yet another test.

He faces a Bengals defense that includes sacks artists such as Geno Atkins, Michael Johnson, Carlos Dunlap and Carl Lawson with the possibility of playing behind two new tackles.

Longtime left tackle Anthony Castonzo did limited work in practice Wednesday and his status for Sunday’s game remains unclear. Reich said he’s decided on a starter at right tackle, but won’t make an announcement till Sunday.

Still, Luck isn’t fretting.

He knows he’s endured tougher predicaments and experienced more mentally challenging moments over the past 20 months while rediscovering his passion for the game. And he can’t wait for the moment, Saturday night or Sunday morning, when his stomach tightens and those nerves start firing.

“I think those butterflies will always be there,” he said with a smile. “It’s a special feeling and I’ve missed that feeling.”
