Mets Morning News: deGrom earns win in first game back, Cespedes hopes to return soon

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

Jacob deGrom enjoyed a successful return to the mound the Sunday. With a pitch limit of 85, he went five-and-two-thirds innings, struck out three, and gave up one earned run. Aaron Blair, who was making his major league debut for the Braves, mostly held the raging hot Mets' offense in check. Michael Conforto provided most of the offense with a sacrifice fly in the first and a RBI double in the sixth, which gave the Mets a lead they would never relinquish. The Mets went 7-2 on the road trip and return home to face the Reds tonight.
