Remembering Mets History (2015) Jacob deGrom One Hits Cards & Ks Season High 11 Batters

Thursday May 21st 2015: A Citi Field crowd of 32,783 came out for an afternoon matinee as Terry Collins second place Mets (24-18) just 1/2 game back hosted Mike Matheny's first place St. Louis Cardinals.

The Mets sent Jacob deGrom (4-4) to the mound facing the Cards Jaime Garcia (0-0). It was one of deGroms best outings of the year.

Starting Lineups

He started out the first inning by striking out three batters, although he did allow a base hit to Matt Carpenter. deGrom would then retire the next 23 batters in a row. He was nothing less than awesome this afternoon, allowing a season low one hit & no walks in eight innings of work. 

No Cardinal got past first base during his eight innings of work. This afternoon deGrom struck out a season high eleven batters. deGrom would have five games where he had double figures in strike outs on the 2015 season.

In the 4th inning, the Mets got a walk to Lucus Duda & a pair of singles to Michael Cuddyer & Daniel Murphy. Then short time Met John Mayberry Jr. singled to left field scoring Duda, making it 1-0 Mets.

In the 6th Duda hit a solo HR, the first of his two on the day. His other came in the 8th inning a three run shot off Randy Choate, capping off a four RBI day for Mr. Duda. Duda now had five HRs on the young season.

Jeurys Familia came on in the 9th & gave up the second hit of the day, but closed out the 5-0 shut out.
