Reynolds' homer leads Syndergaard, Mets past Royals 4-3
NEW YORK (AP) Matt Reynolds snapped a sixth-inning tie with his first major league home run, leading Noah Syndergaard and the New York Mets past the Kansas City Royals 4-3 on Wednesday for a two-game sweep in their World Series rematch.
Asdrubal Cabrera homered for the second straight day and scored with an acrobatic slide to help Syndergaard (8-2) win his sixth consecutive decision. The only bad news for banged-up New York was another injury, this one to Yoenis Cespedes.
The star slugger had two hits and a walk, including a double off the center-field wall, but was removed in the sixth because of discomfort in his left wrist.
Cheslor Cuthbert homered for the Royals, who had won eight of nine when they arrived at Citi Field - where they clinched their 2015 championship with a late rally in Game 5.
