In what is likely his last start of the year, Jacob deGrom pitched seven more shutout innings and his teammates had an offensive explosion, giving him a nine-run lead after three innings, en route to a 10-3 win over the Marlins Wednesday night. However, the Mets were eliminated from the postseason with the Brewers win.
deGrom allowed just three baserunners in his seven innings and he extended his scoreless streak to 23 IP. He likely finishes the year with a 2.43 ERA and an 11-8 record. He went 7-1 in his last eight decisions and in his final 23 starts, deGrom put up a 1.89 ERA.
Jeff McNeil and Michael Conforto had RBI doubles in a three-run first inning for the Mets. In the second, Pete Alonso had a three-run homer and in the third, Amed Rosario and Brandon Nimmo added run-scoring doubles.
After getting hit by a pitch in the hand in the sixth inning, McNeil left the game. It was later announced that he had a broken wrist and would miss the rest of the year.
