Syndergaard, Mets shut out Royals following ring ceremony

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard was amused when Kauffman Stadium's sound system played "American Woman" as he trotted out to the mound for the first inning.

Syndergaard silenced the fans with six dominant innings, Neil Walker hit his first home run for the Mets and New York beat Kansas City 2-0 Tuesday after the Royals were given their 2015 World Series rings.

Syndergaard (1-0) was the only pitcher to beat Kansas City in the World Series last year. The rookie won Game 3 after intentionally firing his first pitch above Alcides Escobar's head, angering the Royals.
