Noah Syndergaard knows how to help his own cause.

The Mets righthanded pitcher, who bats lefthanded, drove the first pitch he saw from Tyler Mahle over the left-centerfield wall for a 407-foot home run to give the Mets a 1-0 lead over the Reds in the third inning.

It was the second homer of the season and sixth of his career for Syndergaard, who hit one on April 21 in a loss to the Cardinals.
