Result: The Mets put a pounding on the Marlins, sweeping the series with a 9-1 victory heading into the All-Star Break.
Need to Know: Jacob deGrom tossed seven innings of one run baseball, allowing five hits and walking two. He struck out eight Marlins. The only run came after Eric Campbell lost a ball in the sun in short right field, which dropped in for a double. Later, an infield single would drive in a run.
Every Mets starter picked up a hit, save for Ruben Tejada. David Wright and Chris Young both drove in two runs. Wright had two hits and scored twice. Curtis Granderson had three hits, a walk, drove in one and scored twice. DeGrom even helped his own cause with an RBI single.
Jeurys Familia and Buddy Carlyle pitches scoreless innings in relief.
Game Ball: deGrom and the offense as a whole deserve the game balls today.
