Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker has done some damage against the New York Mets during this four-game series, which includes belting a game-winning home run off Edwin Diaz a few nights ago. Well, Mets starter Noah Syndergaard had his number all afternoon, striking him out three times, and his frustration spilled over in the ninth when the home plate umpire made a questionable strike call. Check out his reaction, which led to his inevitable ejection:

Winker has been giving it to Mets fans all series, and so you can bet he received a round of applause when he was tossed at Citi Field this afternoon, especially after he waved to the fans after his game-ending catch on Wednesday night.
As you can imagine, the Mets faithful were thrilled with this outcome. Syndergaard went the distance and threw a complete game shutout, but Winker's demise in the end was what they cared about and they waived him out of Citi Field.
Jesse Winker trolled Mets fans all series. Noah Syndergaard didn't "meet him 60 feet 6 inches away". He struck him out three times, Winker went 0 for 4, and got so frustrated he was ejected before he could finish his final AB. I don't know about you but I found that satisfying. pic.twitter.com/oYTkBRFUKi— Roger Cormier (@yayroger) May 2, 2019
It's a bit comical that a totally decent outfielder for the Reds is public enemy in No. 1 in New York. Who would've thought.
