Result: The Mets ended their three-game skid, defeating the Mariners, 3-1, in the second of a three-game series in Seattle.
Need to Know: Looking to make his fifth quality start in six outings, Jacob deGrom was stellar on the mound for the Mets. The rookie right-hander allowed one run and struck out seven over seven innings to pick up his fourth win of the season. Travis d’Arnaud and Ruben Tejada put the Mets on the board in the second inning with a pair of RBIs. Dustin Ackley tallied an RBI double in the fifth, the only blemish on deGrom’s stat line Tuesday night, but Lucas Duda’s solo home run in the eighth gave the Mets an insurance run. Jenrry Mejia came on in the ninth and converted his 12th save this campaign. Duda’s two-hit night led the way offensively for New York.
Game Ball: deGrom, who was outstanding to help end the Mets’ three-game losing streak.
What’s Next: The Mets and Mariners meet again Wednesday afternoon at 3:40 p.m. Bartolo Colon (8-8, 4.12 ERA) gets the call for New York opposite Seattle’s Taijuan Walker (1-1, 3.60 ERA).
