Final Score: Dodgers 4, Mets 3 — deGrom deFeated by deLongball and deFense

Jacob deGrom turned in another strong performance in his second major league start, but a trio of Dodger homers combined with an atrociously blown double play opportunity to hand him and the Mets another L.

In his second major league start, Jacob deGrom put on another solid performance, mixing his pitches well and negotiating around baserunners with aplomb. In the final analysis, he probably made only three mistakes. Unfortunately, all three of them left the yard.

The Dodgers jumped out to an early lead when Adrian Gonzalez belted a solo shot deep into the Pepsi Porch in the top of the second, then expanded their advantage on back-to-back blasts from Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez in the sixth.

The Mets appeared completely helpless batting against Hyun-Jin Ryu until the bottom of the sixth, when an Eric Campbell two-run homer brought them within a run. But the Dodgers tacked on a run in the eighth, thanks to some head-smackingly awful infield defense that turned a potential inning-ending DP into a run-scoring groundout. The Mets scored once but no more in the ninth, making that mental error all the more damaging.
