The Mets didn’t make any noise the day of the trade deadline. Instead they saved their bullets for the game Wednesday night, scoring three runs in the ninth inning to earn a 4-2 win over the White Sox. It was the Mets’ sixth-consecutive win. The club is now 12-5 since the All-Star break and have closed to three games of .500 at 52-55. After 107 games a year ago, the Mets were 44-63.
Jacob deGrom had another outstanding game, as he allowed just 1 ER in 7 IP with 11 Ks. But it was another no-decision for deGrom, as the Mets waited until after he was gone to put up a crooked number on the board.
Michael Conforto reached base three times and had a run and two RBIs. Todd Frazier had two hits, a run and an RBI.
Justin Wilson vultured the win and Edwin Diaz gave up a solo homer but struck out the side and picked up the save.
