The Mets beat the Rockies 3-1 behind a very strong pitching performance from deGrom and the Bullpen.
The Mets scored the first run after Villar stole third and scored on McCann his RBI Ground Out in the first. Villar wasn’t as succesfull on the bases overall, being caught twice later in the game.
deGrom got his run, but gave it right up after a McMahon solo homerun in the second. It was all deGrom allowed going 5 innings, allowing 3 hits and 0 walks. He struck out 9 in his return to action.
After Castro pitched a scoreless sixth, Nido gave the Mets the lead with a 2 run shot in the sixth. Castro was able to get another perfect inning, striking out 4 in 2 innings.
May and Diaz closed it out. Diaz struck out three in the ninth with a walk in between for his 8th save. Diaz is perfect in his save opportunities.
Marcus Stroman will face the Rockies looking to get a lead in the series.
Noah Syndergaard left the St. Lucie Mets game with sore right elbow.
