Result: The Mets blanked the Brewers, 2-0, on Sunday in Milwaukee on the back of another strong pitching performance by Jacob deGrom.
Need to Know: deGrom impressed again for the Mets as he shut out the Brewers over 6 1/3 innings Sunday afternoon. The right-hander struck out four and allowed four hits to pick up the fifth win of his career. Offense was hard to come by at Miller Park, with Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson matching deGrom pitch for pitch until Lucas Duda broke up the scoreless tie with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. The blast, Duda’s 18th on the season, scored Daniel Murphy, who led off the inning with a double. Chris Young chipped in two doubles as well, and Jenrry Mejia came on in the ninth inning to slam the door, recording his 15th save of 2014.
Game Ball: deGrom, who has now allowed just two earned runs over his last four starts for the Mets.
What’s Next: The Mets travel back to New York to begin a seven-game home stand as they host the Phillies at Citi Field on Monday night. Bartolo Colon (9-8, 4.03) will get the start against Philadelphia’s A.J. Burnett (6-9, 3.86).
