The 30-year-old right-hander made an appearance with the New York Mets back in 2015, starting Game 3 of the series against the Kansas City Royals.
Tonight, he’ll be starting Game 3 against the Houston Astros, with the series tied at one game apiece after the two teams traded punches in the first two games.
Syndergaard will have a chance to put the Phillies up 2-1 in the series.
Yesterday, Syndergaard commented on getting the start in Game 3, recalling his time with the Mets, when he got the chance to start Game 3 back in 2015.
"Seven years just seems like a long time ago. I was just a very naive rookie at the time."

Thor Comments On Game 3
Syndergaard was merely a rookie back in 2015.
Seven years later, he returns to the World Series with a little more experience and a chance to help the Phillies gain a 2-1 series edge.
During the regular season, the veteran right-hander went 10-10 in 24 starts with a 3.94 ERA.
Syndergaard was acquired from the Los Angeles Angels at the trade deadline.
This postseason, he has appeared in three games and posted a 1.69 ERA.
The Astros will be countering with right-hander Lance McCullers.
It’s certainly been a while since Syndergaard pitched in the World Series.
In Game 3 back in 2015, Syndergaard tossed six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits against the Royals.
Game 3 gets underway at 8:03 p.m. Eastern Time.
Can Syndergaard put the Phillies ahead 2-1 in the series?
