Meet the Mets
It was as perfect a night as the Mets have had all season. Facing their hated rivals, the Mets not only eliminated the Nationals from playoff contention, but also got their ace, Jacob deGrom a much-needed win to bolster his Cy Young chances. While deGrom pitched brilliantly as usual, the Mets finally gave him the run support to back it up. Jay Bruce lead the way as the Mets put up four runs, which was more than enough for deGrom, who gave up a mere one run in seven innings of work. The Mets won 4-2 and couldn’t have been happier.
Jerry Beach says Jacob deGrom’s season is reminiscent of Orel Hershiser’s 30 years ago.
Devin Mesoraco made his return to the Mets’ lineup, but don’t expect him to be around next year.
Peter Alonso hopes to compete for a roster spot next spring.
