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 deGrom's best outings of the year.

deGrom started out the first inning by striking out Kolten Wong. He gave up a base hit to Matt Carpenter, then struck out Jhonny Peralta & Matt Adams. After the 1st inning single, 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.

In the 2nd inning, he struck out the first two batters, then added a strike out in each of the next four innings. 

In the 7th, he got Carpenter & Adams both swinging to make 11 strike outs.

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 by 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, Lucas Duda hit a solo HR, the first of his two HRs on the day. 

In the 8th inning, Curtis Granderson walked, Wilmer Flores then had a one out single. New pitcher, Randy Choate then served up a three run HR to Duda, capping off his four RBI day. 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.
