Thanks to another great start by Jacob deGrom and another home run off the bat of Lucas Duda, the Mets beat the Brewers in Milwaukee this afternoon to earn a series split with the National League Central leaders. The Mets’ bullpen trio of Vic Black, Jeurys Familia, and Jenrry Mejia didn’t hurt, either.
Neither team scored through five innings, but Duda broke through with a long two-run home run in the sixth inning that proved to be the difference in the game. deGrom threw six-and-one-third scoreless innings with four strikeouts and two walks, and he gave up just four hits in the process. Black, Familia, and Mejia combined to allowed just two hits in two-and-two-thirds innings to finish the game.
