Cardinals K 15 times in Opening Day loss to Mets

Noah Syndergaard correctly believes Opening Day should be a national holiday

Leadoff man Brandon Nimmo, subbing for injured All-Star Michael Conforto, reached safely four times and scored twice as the Mets chased a furious Carlos Martinez in their five-run fifth inning to make Callaway a victor at sold-out Citi Field.

Worth noting: After starting 1,038 career games in center field, Dexter Fowler made his first career start in right field and did not have a fielding chance in the game.

It appeared then it was the start for another feel-good year and possibly a third consecutive postseason appearance for the Mets. He did strike out twice and left two more runners on base.

Now the Mets have a clean slate, and they're looking to Syndergaard, not only on Opening Day, but for a full, healthy season of 30-plus starts.

Mickey Callaway's first game as a manager with the Mets went exactly according to plan.

"I thought it was a great team win. He's done a great job this offseason, has done what it takes to put himself in the same caliber as those other guys".

It isn't known when Holland will be ready to join the team, having missed all of spring training, and it could be hard for him to find a place to get into games in the next week.

"The season may not be in full swing, but the economic impact of the Mets Opening Day Game has proven to be tremendous, providing one more thing for fans and Citi Field employees to cheer about", James Patchett, EDC's president, said in a statement.

New Mets third baseman Todd Frazier summed up how imposing Syndergaard is to opposing hitters. "A lot of fun", Syndergaard said.

Less than two hours before the first pitch, the Cardinals landed a closer.

Despite losing their first eight openers in the 1960s, the Mets have baseball's best record on opening day at 37-20.
