The New York Mets Pitcher Made A Cameo On Last Week's "Game Of Thrones"

Noah Syndergaard made the perfect Lannister soldier, tbh.

On Season 7, Episode 4 of Game of Thrones, "The Spoils of War," things finally came to a head with Daenerys and the Lannisters when Khaleesi's Dothraki soldiers surprise-attacked the Lannister army.

Oh, and Daenerys also showed up with Drogon.

Things were, uhhh, not looking too good for the Lannister army.

But at the beginning of the battle, there was a very quick shot of one Lannister soldier New York Mets fans might've recognized: pitcher Noah Syndergaard.

Back in March, it was reported that HBO signed a partnership with the MLB to cross-promote Game of Thrones with 19 Major League Baseball teams.

Nice arm, soldier.

Syndergaard tweeted about the cameo on Sunday night after the episode aired.

Take that you mean Dothraki #shottotheheart #andyouretoblame https://t.co/3ZERpVDwvm

And defended his position as a Lannister soldier.

To my sides defense....they had a FRICKEN DRAGON!!! 🔥🔥🔥 At least I didn't throw behind him.

@Mets @Noahsyndergaard @GameOfThrones @zacht1306 From Flame Thrower to Spear Thrower... Wonder if the Dragon got him???

Rewatching #GoT. Caught @Noahsyndergaard right before he throws his spear through a Dothraki. Definitely the heater

After all, he sure does look like a Lannister with those long, blonde locks and bright blue eyes.

Too bad the Lannisters didn't stand a chance because Drogon had his way with everyone.

RIP Noah Lannister.
