Thursday Afternoon in Milwaukee, Jacob deGrom continued his pattern of dominance; the Mets snap their 7 game losing streak with a 2-0 win at Miller Park. deGrom and Brewer starter Taylor Jungmann pitched to a scoreless tie through 5 complete. In the 6th the Mets got to Jungmann’s relief Michael Blazek when Wilmer Flores double down the left field line scored Michael Cuddyer. In the 7th Lucas Duda’s grounder ricocheted off lefty Will Smith to score deGrom with the 2nd run and it was 2-0. deGrom had his best outing of the year going 8 innings allowing just 4 hits while striking out 7. He gets the win improving to 8-5 while dropping his era to 2.15. Jeurys Familia pitched the 9th for this 20th save. Blazek takes the loss, he’s now 4-2. The Mets amassed 10 hits on the day, Granderson led the way going 3 for 5. Terry Collins was ejected from the game in the 4th inning. With the win the Mets end their 7 game slide as they go 1-7 on this road trip. They are 11-26 on the road and overall are back at .500 at 37-37. Friday night it’s back home to the friendly confines of Citi Field. Noah Syndergaard (2-4 4.03) goes for the Mets, Johnny Cueto (4-4 2.98) goes for Cincinnati.
