NEW YORK — In one of the most significant games of his life, Noah Syndergaard is at his most dominant best.
Syndergaard didn’t allow his first hit until Denard Span singled with two outs in the sixth inning in the National League Wild Card Game against the Giants on Wednesday night. Only two pitchers have completed postseason no-hitters: Don Larsen, who threw a perfect game for the Yankees in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Dodgers, and Roy Halladay, who fired a no-hitter for the Phillies in Game 1 of the 2010 NL Division Series against the Reds.

Facing a Giants club that was the most difficult in baseball to strike out during the regular season, Syndergaard had 10 punchouts through the first six innings. He has thrown all five of his pitches, topping out at 100 mph with his four-seam fastball.
