Jacob deGrom showed that his dominant performance versus the Braves was no fluke by allowing just one run over seven innings this afternoon in a 9-1 rout over Miami. The young right-hander struck out eight batters and walked two, only running into trouble in the fourth when some shoddy defense allowed a pair of would-be outs to turn into hits.
It was no big deal for the Mets, though, as they scored a run in the second and added four more between the fourth and the sixth innings. With deGrom pitching as well as he was, a four-run eighth was just icing on the cake. Pretty much everyone contributed for New York on offense, with Eric Campbell and Ruben Tejada being the only starters to fail to drive in a run. Meanwhile, David Wright and Chris Young had two RBI each, and Curtis Granderson had three hits to lead the team in that category.
