Jacob deGrom was out of sight this afternoon, stifling the Cardinals for eight innings. The stifling included allowing only one hit, walking no one and striking out 11. His Game Score was 91, which ranks him second this season behind Corey Kluber’s 18-strikeout performance a week ago.
deGrom wasn’t alone in the heroics: Lucas Duda hit a solo homer in the sixth inning and a three-run homer in the eighth as the Mets cruised to a 5-0 victory. The whole game took two hours and twenty-six minutes. Getaway Day much?
