Noah Syndergaard reacts to allowing one run in six innings Tuesday in his return from strep throat. His next start will be either the wild-card game or, if the Mets need it, the final day of the regular season.

When David Ortiz strolled to the plate, representing the go-ahead run with two outs in the ninth, Yankees manager Joe Girardi thought, "I was like, 'What are the chances he is coming up in this situation. It is kind of the way fate had it tonight." Ortiz struck out against Tyler Clippard to end the game, preventing the Red Sox from clinching the AL East.
