Final Score: Rangers 10, Mets 8—deGrom’s struggles continue

For the second straight game, Jacob deGrom failed to make it to the fifth inning.

MLB: New York Mets at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

It’s not often that a team knocks out the opposing starting pitcher in 3.1 innings and loses the game. Despite tallying 17 hits and scoring eight runs, the Mets fell to the Texas Rangers and our old friend Dillon Gee in the first game of their series.

The biggest story of the night was Jacob deGrom who lasted only four innings for the second straight start. He allowed eight earned runs on ten hits and one walk. Over his last two starts, he has allowed 15 earned runs. Yikes.

The Mets came to bat in the top of the ninth down 10-5. Back-to-back home runs from Curtis Granderson and Travis d’Arnaud cut the lead to 10-8. The Mets looked to be in a position to possibly steal the game after Juan Lagares and Michael Conforto got on base representing the tying runs. However, an Asdrubal Cabrera strikeout followed by an inning-ending double play from Jay Bruce cut the rally short.

Full recap to follow.
