The RedHawks finish their eight-game homestand Monday against Las Vegas’ Noah Syndergaard, the New York Mets’ top pitching prospect.

Syndergaard (5-3, 4.47 ERA) has been on the disabled list with a sprained A/C joint in his left, non-throwing shoulder, an injury he suffered during a tag play at home plate on June 5.

That play happened during his first game back from another DL stint due to a strained flexor-pronator in his throwing elbow.

The RedHawks’ scheduled starter is right-hander Nick Tropeano (4-4, 2.31), who threw seven strong innings against Salt Lake last Monday for the victory.

A win would give Oklahoma City a series victory and 5-3 record on the homestand.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

The teams combined for five errors, with Oklahoma City making three. Preston Tucker accounted for two in his Triple-A debut at first base. … Matt Duffy pinch-hit for Krauss in the eighth inning after Krauss fouled a pitch off his shin. Duffy singled to center to score Domingo Santana. … The Astros recalled right-hander Paul Clemens to replace Josh Fields, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list, and signed former closer Jose Veras to a minor-league contract. … Las Vegas’ Travis d’Arnaud hit a three-run homer in the sixth. He has homered in each game this series.
