Use of the six-man rotation across Major League Baseball is a matter of when, not if. Decades ago, the Mets changed baseball. Next year, they’ll be in a position to do it again.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, deGrom became the first rookie in club history to win four consecutive games in one season while pitching at least six innings and allowing no more than one run in each game.
Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer, rookie Jacob deGrom pitched well into the seventh, and the New York Mets split a four-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers with a 2-0 win Sunday.
Could Jacob deGrom end up being the NL Rookie of the Year? Count Mets manager Terry Collins as a believer.
Jacob deGrom allowed five hits and a run in seven impressive innings, Lucas Duda hit a mammoth home run and the New York Mets beat the Seattle Mariners 3-1 Tuesday night.
Good fortune certainly smiles if the kid works out. If he doesn’t, then the position goes down the tubes. If enough spots follow, then the season goes out the window.
Jacob deGrom had a tiebreaking single and again shut down the Marlins with seven impressive innings.
It might have been asking too much for Bartolo Colon to become an offensive force out of that spot. Still, there was some clear thinking from manager Terry Collins.
Rookie Jacob deGrom struck out 11 in seven shutout innings and also delivered a table-setting hit from the No. 8 spot in the batting order as the New York Mets tagged All-Star Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves 8-3 Tuesday night.
It took eight tries, but Jacob deGrom finally posted his first major-league win with a victory over the Marlins on Saturday in Miami.
Jacob deGrom didn’t get much help from his teammates — or the umpires, for that matter. And that’s what led to an early exit for manager Terry Collins.
It’s fantastic that the Mets have a wealth of pitching. But do you know what else it is? Infuriating.
Terry Collins probably said it best after Monday’s brutal loss and subsequent firing of hitting coach Dave Hudgens: “S— happens.” But then again, a lot of #*!@ happens to these Mets.
Gaby Sanchez tagged the Mets again, delivering a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning and a tiebreaking single in the ninth that started the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 5-3, come-from-behind victory over New York on Monday.
The Mets got 13 hits and another encouraging outing from rookie Jacob deGrom. That still wasn’t enough to overcome the homer-happy Dodgers.
