Meet the Mets
Jacob deGrom shockingly has had trouble with the Marlins in the past, but no such issues were on display in the series sweep of the Fish. deGrom was downright dominant. He struck out a career-high fourteen batters and added a solo home run of his own to boot. The rest of the Mets offense backed him up with just enough runs for when the bullpen made it dicey in the late innings. The Mets now come home to open at Citi for the first time this season to take on the Nationals.
