Jacob deGrom struck out the first eight batters he faced, but the Mets went on to lose.

After Jacob deGrom tied the major league record by striking out the first eight batters he faced, the Mets went on to lose to the Marlins in a see-saw affair. Though they had a two-run lead going into the seventh inning, deGrom gave up three runs in that frame before the Mets answered with three of their own in the bottom half. Unfortunately, the Marlins scored three in the top of the eighth, all of which were charged to Jeurys Familia.

In total, deGrom struck out thirteen and walked one. Along with the team’s comeback in the bottom of the seventh, that was the highlight of the game.
