Game Recap: Mets defeat Brewers 2-0 as deGrom sparkles

By Rich Sparago

The Mets sent Jacob deGrom to the mound today in Milwaukee, looking to get a win and split their 4-game series with the Brewers. Jimmy Nelson started for Milwaukee, and the two hurlers combined for an old-fashioned pitchers’ duel. On this day, however, deGrom was just a little better. His effort, combined with relief help from Vic Black, Jeurys Familia, and Jenrry Mejia led the Mets to a 2-0 victory, a series split, and a 5-5 road trip.
