The Mets beat the Mariners 3-1 on Tuesday night to snap a three-game losing streak. Rookie righty Jacob deGrom was excellent once again and gave up just one run over seven innings. He struck out seven, walked just one, allowed only five hits, and now has a 3.01 ERA and 3.10 FIP on the season.
While the Mets’ lineup didn’t dominate, it scored three runs. Travis d’Arnaud tripled in Bobby Abreu on a ball to shallow center that was misplayed and rolled past Seattle’s James Jones, and Ruben Tejada singled to score him. After deGrom gave up a run in the fifth, the score held at 2-1 until Lucas Duda hit a monstrous solo home run in the top of the eighth for some insurance. That lead held up, as Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia threw a scoreless inning apiece to complete the game.
