Jacob Degrom scored 14 matches but the Mets couldn’t defeat Trevor Rogers and Marlins
New York – Jacob Degrom The best hitting of his career matched 14 in eight rounds, but, as is often the case with a two-time Cy Young award winner, he got no offensive support as the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-0 on Saturday.
DeGrom (0-1) seemed untenable early on, until Chisholm Jazz He hit a fast ball thrown at 100.4 mph at a 0-2 counts over the strike zone in the second half. The left hitter’s home shot reached the second floor from the right field and measured 402 feet.
This was the first home run 0-2 that DeGrom had allowed in the majors.
That was all Miami could do against DeGrom. Right-handed strikes hit 14 strikes for the fourth time in his career, including three against Marlins. He allowed one run, five strokes, walked no one and made 76 of his 95 throws for strikes.
Left-handed Trevor Rogers Marlins didn’t make it easy for the Mets, swinging 10 in six runs to defeat DeGrom for a second time in nine major league matches. The 23-year-old scored his first major league win over Degroom in a 5–3 win on August 31.
Rogers, a pick in the first round of the 2017 draft, had no major problems against New York, allowing three hits and twice walks, retiring 11 times in a row in one stretch of the game.
Rogers mixed a fast, average 95 mph ball with a scroll bar and key, resulting in 19 hits and misses among his 82 stadiums. He ended the outing with punches in Michael Comfort s House of Alonso, Which left two contestants waiting for a draw to maintain the 1-0 lead.

Meanwhile, New York is closer Edwin Diaz DeGrom was relaxed and in trouble. Starling Mars He doubled to lead the half and scored with one song the next minute in his favor Jesus Aguilar. Rojas added an RBI single before Diaz pulled and booed off the hill.
Mets fans also mocked Conforto, who hit three times to extend his streak of defeats and start what could be his final season in New York. The right-hand player will become a free agent in the fall.
The 32-year-old DeGrom looks better than ever in his eighth season in the major league. Not only does it average 99 mph using fastball, compared to 94 mph when it first debuted in 2014, it is also promoting it with more “lift”. The pitch is dropping an inch on average less than it was in 2020, making the hitters see it moving into the hit area as it approaches.
DeGrom hit no fewer than 10 players for the 47th time, overtaking Dwight Gooden for second place in Mets history, behind Tom Seaver 60.
The New York players four times made a good start in the team’s first five matches, but they were 2-3 per season.
