New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard had an enjoyable night at the plate in Wednesday’s 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and joined Walt Terrell (1983) as the only pitchers in Mets franchise history to hit multiple home runs in a game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Syndergaard started the scoring with a solo home run off Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda in the top of the third inning, but the Dodgers then fought back to take a 2-1 lead courtesy of solo homers from shortstop Corey Seager (third inning) and catcher Yasmani Grandal (fourth inning).

Unfazed, the 23-year-old Syndergaard stepped up to the plate with a pair of runners on base in the fifth inning, and he proceeded to hit the ball over the left-center field fence to give his team a 4-2 lead.

He thus became the first pitcher to homer twice in an MLB game since Micah Owings accomplished the feat in 2007 for the Arizona Diamondbacks, per Sportsnet Stats.

In addition to providing all four of his team’s RBI, Syndergaard held Los Angeles to just the two aforementioned runs on six hits and a walk over eight innings, striking out six batters in an effort that improved his record to 3-2 and his ERA to 2.53.

Mets closer Jeurys Familia did let things get a bit interesting in the bottom of the ninth, but he ultimately struck out Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig for the final out of the game.
