AJ Ramos (two-thirds of an inning) and Buddy Baumann (two innings) each gave up three runs.
Brandon Nimmo broke up the shutout by homering with two outs in the ninth for the Mets.
But it's worth remembering that for all of Syndergaard's awe-inspiring power, he's still logged only 415.2 innings, and for all the hype around him, Mets pitching coach Dave Eiland told the New York Post this week that, "he is yet to do a whole lot at the major league level".
Missing injured sluggers Yoenis Cespedes and Todd Frazier from a slumping lineup, the Mets finally broke through anyway against Jaime Garcia and the skidding Blue Jays after an 86-minute rain delay at the start. Still, he's allowed two earned runs or less in three of six starts, and three runs or less in four of six.
Viewed through that lens, the Blue Jays got far more Dickey than they did from Cone, while Kent did far more in his career than Syndergaard has, at least so far. With his second single, he became the third Jays pitcher with two hits in a game, joining the late Roy Halladay and Drew Hutchison.

Eduard Pinto of the Dunedin Blue Jays is Florida State League (single-A advanced) player of the week (.476, 10-21, 2-2B, HR, 3 RBI) while Lansing Lugnuts' Kevin Smith is Midwest League (single-A) player of the week (.500, 12-24, 5-2B, 1-3B, 4 RBI).

Phillip Evans was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and started in left field. Happ was blasted last Thursday at home by Seattle, one of his former teams, surrendering seven runs and 10 hits, two homers, in 3.1 innings. He struck out in all three at-bats. Syndergaard's ERA looks great but he has averaged a hit per inning and has not had that dominant game yet this season.
The Blue Jays offense has slashed.231/.312/.415 on its way to 4.8 runs scored per game in 2018, including 2.7 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 3.0 per game over the team's last five outings (1-4 SU).
The Mets will turn to righty Zack Wheeler (2-2, 5.03 ERA) to the mound. He is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in four career appearances (three starts) against NY.
