DeGrom didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Nationals, giving up one run on two hits and three walks over six innings while striking out eight. In a matchup of aces, deGrom gave up a first-inning solo shot to Adam Eaton before locking down the Washington offense, but with Max Scherzer firing zeros it seemed like the Mets right-hander was headed for his sixth loss before the bullpens got involved. DeGrom will take a 3.72 ERA and 75:17 K:BB through 58 innings into his next start Monday, on the road against the Dodgers.
DeGrom (3-5) took the loss Friday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on nine hits over five innings while striking out three as the Mets were downed 8-6 by the Marlins. Miami snapped its 27-inning scoreless streak when Garrett Cooper ended a 10-pitch at-bat against deGrom in the third with a two-run single, and the right-hander never seemed to recover his confidence after failing to put Cooper away. He'll carry a 3.98 ERA and 67:14 K:BB through 52 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against the Nats.
DeGrom (3-4) earned the win against the Marlins on Saturday by allowing only one run on five hits over seven innings. He fanned eight and walked one. DeGrom was in top form again Saturday as he pounded the zone with 78 strikes in 106 pitches, throwing first-pitch strikes to 20 of 27 batters. The Mets were finally able to provide some run support, though deGrom still pitched in an RBI single of his own. The 30-year-old has delivered seven frames in each of his last three outings while allowing only three runs on 11 hits with a 21:4 K:BB. DeGrom now has a 3.26 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, and lines up to face either the Nationals or Marlins late next week.
DeGrom allowed three hits and two walks while striking out six across seven scoreless innings Wednesday against the Reds. He did not factor into the decision. DeGrom returned to his dominant form, holding the Reds hitless into the fifth inning and not allowing an extra-base hit for the entirety of his start. He also generated 20 swinging strikes, continuing his elite ability to miss bats. Though his lack of run support was reminiscent of last season, it was encouraging to see him bounce back after allowing 14 earned runs across his last 13 innings spanning three starts. He'll look to keep things going in his next outing, which should come Monday at San Diego.
DeGrom (2-3) allowed five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out seven over four innings Friday to take the loss against the Brewers. To put it simply, deGrom just didn't have it in Friday's outing. His night did begin with a three-hour rain delay, which certainly didn't help his cause. He really struggled to locate his pitches throughout the contest, and the reigning NL Cy Young winner surrendered all five of his runs in the fifth inning. Following a brief trip to the injured list due to an elbow issue, deGrom still doesn't quite look like himself.
