Jacob deGrom returns, Mets snap losing skid
The New York Mets finally got one of their seventeen injured players back on Tuesday when Jacob deGrom toed the rubber against Colorado. Though he was pulled after just 63 pitches as precaution, deGrom was still dominant, allowing one run through five innings and striking out nine. The Mets' offense, which had scored just four runs in the past three games (all losses), finally came to life as well. In addition to a key first-inning run, Tomás Nido would club a 2-run home run to give New York a 3-1 lead that would stick thanks to the bullpen. The Mets stay above .500 at 22-20 for the season, and will look to push that record further with Marcus Stroman facing Germán Marquez today. The Yankees' hot streak came to a screeching halt at the hands of Vlad Guerrero Jr. and the Blue Jays. Former Met Steven Matz struck out 10 in his victory, and the Yankees look to bounce back today against the debuting rookie Alex Manoah.
