Meet the Mets
Jacob deGrom followed up his complete game against the Cubs with another sensational outing against the Nationals. He gave up an unearned run in the first, but he got it back himself when he hit the first home run of his major league career off Joe Ross. deGrom went into cruise control once the game was tied and he gave the Nationals very little to work with. He pitched eight fantastic innings and probably could’ve gone nine if not for some shaky defense behind him.
Michael Conforto helped provide some offense with his two RBIS and the Mets were able to avoid the sweep at the hands of Washington.
Michael Conforto’s bat also made its presence known in Sunday’s win which was a promising sign from the young lefty.
Daniel Murphy took a break from tormenting his old team and actually helped them when he misplayed a popup.
For one day the Mets looked like a complete team and they can hope this game turns their fortunes around.
Around the NL East
Marcell Ozuna’s heroics in the eighth were not enough for Miami to walk away with the win.
Around the Majors
Kyle Schwarber’s disappointing season comes down to a lack of consistency at the plate.
