Jacob deGrom made his 2nd Major League start yesterday for the Mets. He took a loss in his 1st game against the Bronx Bombers despite only letting up 1 run. In this game against the Dodgers, he got a little roughed up going 6 innings, striking out 4 batters and letting up 3 homers (all solo) and taking the loss. This is a start to learn from for deGrom. deGrom’s pitching has been great so far despite 2 pitching losses. The game came down to 1 play, with 1 out in the 8th inning, the Mets walked Yasiel Puig to put runners on the corners setting up a double play. Hanley Ramirez was up for LA, he bounced one to the pitcher, Jeurys Familia, Familia turned around to throw to 2nd base but 2 Mets covered 2nd and Familia hesitated to throw, once he threw into the confusion, runners were safe at home and 1st! A disappointing mental error charged the Mets from getting the win. A 9th inning rally couldn’t do anything when David Wright surprisingly struck out to end a great hitting day. The Final score- Mets 3 Dodgers 4
On a personal note, congrats to our southern friend Alan on the 2 wins by the Dodgers… ROLL TIDE
The Spurs dominated the Thunder last night winning 112-77 and completely shutting down the Thunder’s offensive attack. Every player bench or starter contributed in a big way in the win for San Antonio. I can’t name a MVP because everyone played great! For OKC, KD and Russell Westbrook scored 15 points. The Thunder must pick themselves up after 2 blowout losses.
