Jacob deGrom is great; Mets salvage split.
The Mets won today versus St.Louis by a score or 5-0. The Mets salvaged a series split against the Cardinals, in a series that was dominated by the Cardinals. The Mets are now 0.5 games behind the first place Washington Nationals.
deGrom pitched what was easily the best game of the year. He threw 40 pitches in the first two innings, and gave up one hit, but besides that he was perfect. deGrom was his 2014 self. I wonder if this truly was a psychological slump like he says it was. He struck out 11 today and truly looked un-hittable. I was actually surprised that deGrom didn’t go out for the 9th, as he was under his 110 pitch cap prior to the 9th.
The Mets now travel to Pittsburgh. The 7 Line and I will be there on Saturday.
