The Mets put their 1st run of the day on the board in the top of the 4th, when Chris Young, with 2 out and David Wright on 2nd after a Lucas Duda walk, singled the Captain home to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. Duda unfortunately got caught between 2nd and 3rd for the final out of the inning.
As deGrom cruised, the Mets tacked another one on in the top of the 6th on a David Wright bloop single with 1 out, driving in Eric Young, Jr., who had walked to lead off the inning, and sending Curtis Granderson to 3rd, who proceeded EYJ with a walk. Duda unfortunately grounded into an inning ending double play.
After Jeurys Familia turned in a solid bottom of the 8th inning, David Wright led off with a double, followed by Lucas Duda redeeming his earlier misplays with a 2-run home run, rounding out the scoring for the day.
Jacob deGrom gave up no runs on 5 hits with 3 walks and 7 strikeouts in 7 innings.
David Wright went 3 for 4 with an RBI and 2 runs scored.
Chris Young went 2 for 4.
The Mets go for the series win tomorrow at 1:10pm ET. RHP Anthony DeSciafani (1-1, 5.60 ERA) faces LHP Jon Niese (3-4, 2.67 ERA.)
