There’s no place like home. The Mets returned from a disastrous road trip and snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 3-0 win over the Angels Friday night.
- Jacob deGrom gave the team what it desperately needed – a strong outing from a starter. He went seven innings and fanned nine. He earned his first win since May 3.
- Curtis Granderson had an RBI double, scoring Michael Conforto in the bottom of the first inning, giving deGrom the early lead. Conforto closed the scoring with a homer in the bottom of the seventh. Rene Rivera extended his hitting streak to 11 games with an RBI single in the sixth.
- The Angels had opportunities to score in both the seventh and eighth innings but were unable to push a run across. Addison Reed pitched a hitless ninth to earn his fifth save of the year and the Mets their first shutout since Opening Day.
