Remembering Mets History: (2015) Jacob deGrom's Two Hitter Ends Mets Seven Game Skid

Thursday June 25th 2015: Terry Collins Mets were at one of their lowest points of the season, riding a seven game losing streak, that started in Toronto, dragged through Atlanta & was now ending in Milwaukee. The Mets were at .500  (37-37) in second place just 3 1/2 games out of first.

33,354 fans attended  the Miller Park matinee in Milwaukee as Craig Counsell's Brewers (27-47) hosted the Mets.

The Mets sent the reigning Rookie of the Year, Jacob deGrom to the mound to stop the bleeding.

Starting Lineups

DeGrom was outstanding, shutting out the Brewers for eight innings, scattering just four hits. deGrom didn't walk anyone & struck out eight Brewers along the way.

Mets manager Terry Collins was ejected in the 4th inning, while arguing an out call as Darrell Ceciliani was attempting a steal of second base.

With two outs in the Mets 6th, Michael Cuddyer singled. Wilmer Flores then doubled down the left field line, brining in Cuddyer with the first run. In the 7th, Jacob deGrom, Dilson Herrera & Curtis Granderson all singled.

After a pitching change & Ruben Tejada striking out, Lucas Duda managed to slap a base hit against the shift on him toward the short stop position. deGrom scored with all he needed for the 2-0 win.

Jeurys Familia came on for a perfect 9th & the Mets had snapped their longest losing streak of the season. For deGrom it was his  8th win of the year getting him to 8-5 with a 2.15 ERA, one of the leagues best.
