Utley smacks 2 HRs after Syndergaard pitch
Chase Utley might be the most hated man in Queens, N.Y.
The Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman, who was thrown at earlier in the game by Noah Syndergaard - prompting the New York Mets starter's ejection - hit the Citi Field crowd right where it hurts by responding with a grand slam in the top of the seventh:
That wasn't the extent of Utley's damage Saturday, though, as he also connected earlier in the sixth inning with a solo shot to break the initial deadlock:
Syndergaard's pitch - which sailed about a foot behind Utley - was likely in retaliation to the infielder's slide that broke the leg of former Mets second baseman Ruben Tejada in last season's NLDS.
