Meet the Mets

The Dodgers rolled into town and destroyed the Mets. In a game that featured one of Jacob deGrom’s least inspiring outings of the year, some terrible relief pitching, and a distinct lack of offense, perhaps the lone bright spots were Amed Rosario stealing his first base during his Citi Field debut and deGrom doing the same. Beyond that, the game was all Dodgers. Yu Darvish threw seven shutout innings, and the Dodgers scored six runs on a hapless Mets team that ended up drawing a donut, and losing to LA 6-0.
