    NEW YORK -- Sure, the New York Mets have to face Madison Bumgarner in the National League wild-card game Wednesday.Well, Mets manager Terry Collins noted, the San Francisco Giants have to face Noah Syndergaard. So they should have their hands full, too.Syndergaard (2.60) finished third in the majors in ERA, followed by Bumgarner (2.74) at fourth.Its the big leagues. Youre going to face great pitching in the postseason, Collins said. I know theyre in their clubhouse saying, Wow, weve got to face Syndergaard. It should be a great game. ... Theyre a great team. They had a rough second half. Everybody knows that. But theyre very talented. I know theyre probably banged up a little bit like we are.Syndergaard originally was slated to start Sundays game against the Philadelphia Phillies if it turned out to be meaningful, but instead he threw a bullpen session at Citizens Bank Park and focused on preparing for Wednesday.Syndergaard and Bumgarner squared off at Citi Field on May 1 in a 6-1 victory by the Giants. Syndergaard allowed four runs in 5? innings and surrendered a two-run homer to Hunter Pence in that game, while Bumgarner tossed six scoreless innings.Syndergaard rebounded to toss eight scoreless innings in a 2-0 win against the Giants on Aug. 21 at AT&T Park. Bumgarner allowed four runs -- all on a grand slam by the now-injured Justin Ruggiano -- in five innings in a no-decision earlier in that series. Bumgarner also homered against Jacob deGrom in that game.Its funky. [Bumgarner] is stepping at you and coming from behind you, Mets infielder Kelly Johnson said of the left-handers delivery. ... The man can pitch. Hes almost like a DH in the lineup, too. So weve got to worry about that. His track record speaks for itself.I dont think I have to sit here and talk about how good he is. Its going to be a tough game. Its going to be fun. I think being at Citi Field -- for us, winning the home field -- cant be stressed enough because thats a big swing in advantage for us, [and] not having to travel across the country, too.Said Collins: If you get balls to hit, you better hit them. Because if you let him get ahead of you, youre in trouble.The Mets revived their season during that mid-August series at San Francisco.After losing the opening two games at AT&T Park, the Mets had dropped to 60-62 and had fallen 5? games behind the Cardinals for the second wild-card spot. However, Yoenis Cespedes and Asdrubal Cabrera returned from the disabled list during that series and the Mets took off, winning the final two games in San Francisco and ultimately going 27-13 to close the regular season.Cespedes had three homers in the two games he played against the Giants in that series.The Mets have posted the best record in the majors since Aug. 20, buoyed not only by Cespedes and Cabreras returns but by the performances of rookie right-handers Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman.We started to get our pieces back. Theres no question, Collins said, reflecting on the series in San Francisco. We knew we had to hold it together while they were out, and we did. We didnt win as many as we wanted, but we still competed. And when we started getting our pieces back, we knew we were going to be OK. Those young pitchers really helped us finish it off.Cespedes right quadriceps continues to nag him, although he minimized the injury Sunday.I think after I came back, the whole team collectively started to improve, Cespedes said through an interpreter. And I think thats why we are where were at now. I feel good. I think Im ready physically and Im ready mentally. Thats the most important thing. Reggie Jackson Jersey . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. Babe Ruth Jersey . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today. Who is general manager Steve Yzerman watching? LeBrun: Over the last 48 hours, hes taken in the home-and-home between the Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche with Jamie Benn and Matt Duchene being the obvious targets. Authentic Yankees Jerseys . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Albert Abreu Jersey . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. History was made Thursday at the League of Legends World Championships. Wild-card qualifier Albus Nox Luna from the CIS region prevailed in Group A to finish second-place to South Koreas champion the ROX Tigers to become the first club from a wild-card region to advance into the bracket stage of the League of Legends World Championship.We spoke to the teams star support Kirill Likkrit Malofeev following the monumental achievement.Its really cool, weve dreamt about it, he started when asked how it felt to make it through the group stage as the ultimate underdog. At the same time, its really confusing because we came here as nothing, and no one expected [anything from us]. We were the 16th team in everyones Power Rankings -- except for [Riot Games] Jatt, so thanks for 15th place -- and no one believed in us but ourselves and our fans. I still dont understand how we completed our goal. Ask me tomorrow, maybe Ill be more prepared.If there has been a main character of the tournament so far, it hasnt been two-time world champion and the games greatest Lee Faker Sang-hyeok, but Likkrit, who has enchanted fans with not only his play, but honest interviews afterwards. His story will continue onto Chicago where ANX will have another shot of turning the esports world on its head.Well, Im considered one of the most toxic players in EU West [server], he said, laughing at his new position as the poster boy of the World Championships after years of being his regions outspoken bad boy. For me, its an opportunity for a fresh start because its not a good thing to be looked at as toxic and angry. Im not [really] like this. Im a very passionate player [in solo queue and can rage]. But in front of the crowd [talking] I dont have to think much about the game, so I can actually think [over] the stuff I say, and the things I say are coming from my heart. I dont know why people like me so much -- Im not special, everyone can do it.When asked what the toughest game of the group stages was for him, he incredulously responded, Do you really need to ask question when you alreaddy know the answer?Of course the game he was speaking of was the 66-minute marathon victory against the ROX Tigers that secured ANXs spot in the final eight of the tournament.dddddddddddd After going through a war of attrition in one the longest games in Worlds history, the CIS champion was able to come out the victor through stellar map play and macro from the entire team.The game against ROX, I consider it to be one of the five hardest games in my life, he said. [That says a lot] because Ive had some hard solo queue games.Likkrit says when the team made it to the quarterfinals, the words coming out of his mouth were quite colorful. I was happy. I was like, Hey guys, Im the last one standing, so Ill just leave and let my buddies [the minions] do the job for me.On the topic of which team he would like to avoid in the bracket stage, the first answer was the team he had just played against in the ROX Tigers. Likkrit was thrilled he wouldnt need to see them again until at least the finals if both clubs made it that far. The other team is the defending champion SK Telecom T1. No one wants to face SKT! They always come to the tournament with people saying theyre not as good as they used to be and -- Likkrit starts clapping his hands furiously. [They] clap your face. I dont want to be that guy that gets clapped.That said, Likkrit wouldnt mind facing fellow support Luan Jockster Cardoso from INTZ. Were from different countries in wild card, but weve become bros. So if not quarterfinals, sometime later [in the tournament].Likkrits long locks of hair and harmonious, inspiring words after game interviews has afforded him the nickname League Jesus by Riot caster Aidan Zirene Moon. All the kind words in the world wont win you a League of Legends match, though. But no matter what the quarterfinals hold for ANX, the sportsmanship displayed by Likkrit will solidify the wildcards legacy as one of the most humble teams in League history.
