Mets RHP Jacob deGrom faced off against the best team in the MLB, and it was another impressive outing for the Cy Young hopeful.
DeGrom started his game red hot, collecting five strikeouts against the first six batters he faced. However, the Red Sox offense was entirely stale against the righty.
The third inning was deGrom's only rough one as Boston's three runs came across in the frame. Mookie Betts hit a sacrifice fly to score Christian Vazquez, and Brock Holt launched a two-run homer in the next at-bat to give the Sox a 3-0 lead early on.
DeGrom, though, would settle down after the third, and continue to rack up strikeouts. The Mets' offense also helped him out by tying the game in the seventh.
In the end, deGrom tallied 12 strikeouts while allowing the three runs on five hits over seven innings of work. His ERA slightly rose to 1.78, but it is still the best in the entire league.
DeGrom also extended his MLB record with now 27 straight starts allowing three earned runs or fewer.
