Mets 5, Cards 0
It was a really close fucking game until the end, too. Duda provided some major insurance with his 2nd dinger of the game in the bottom of the 8th. He hasn’t been hitting much, recently, but they say dingers come in bunches!
deGrom was masterful. He only let up 1 hit–a one-out single in the first inning. He then retired 23 in a row. 8 IPs, 0 R, 1 H, 11 Ks, 0 BBs. Wow.
Good split against the best team in baseball. Harvey and deGrom are the best. We really do have the best pitching in baseball. Can Sandy make us into a MEDIOCRE offense by acquiring someone? I doubt it. Metsblow.
**UPDATE: Mets.com called the performance “deGrominating.” Oh, dePuns, dePuns, dePuns…
