Jacob deGrom made another case for rookie of the year honors with eight scoreless innings against the Colorado Rockies.

Mike Stobe

The Mets did little against Rockies starter Christian Bergman until the bottom of the fifth, when Matt den Dekker belted a double and Juan Lagares drove him home an RBI single. They then tacked on with a pair of two-out hits by Travis d'Arnaud and Curtis Granderson in the sixth. With two whole runs to work with, Jacob deGrom bolstered his Rookie of the Year case with eight scoreless innings and nine K's. Terry Collins did not allow him to pitch the ninth, for some reason, and closer Jenrry Mejia nearly undid his fantastic outing by loading the bases with one out, but Josh Edgin and Jeurys Familia saved the day by recording one out each to preserve the shutout. deGrom's performance was somewhat dampened by the postgame announcement that David Wright has been shut down for the season with shoulder issues.
