deGrom went six innings, struck out ten, didn’t walk anyone, and gave up just two hits in his third start since he was activated from the injured list following a year-long absence. To say that he hasn’t missed a beat would simply be an understatement. Seth Lugo, Trevor May, and Edwin Díaz each threw a scoreless inning to finish off the win.
As for that lone Mets run, it came in the first inning—which by the time the game ended felt like a distant memory, even though the game itself moved along very quickly—on a Pete Alonso single that plated Starling Marte.
