New York Mets rookie righthander Jacob deGrom earned his first major league win today in his eighth career start. DeGrom pitched seven shutout innings, giving up five hits, three walks, and striking out seven in the 4-0 victory over the Miami Marlins
Marlins rookie Tom Koehler pitched well, giving up just four hits and three walks while striking out eight. He gave up two runs in his seven innings of work.
Wright would add an RBI single of his own in the sixth inning, bringing in Eric Young Jr.
DeGrom now stands at 1-4 with a decent 3.75 ERA. Seven of his eight starts have been quality starts, including seven innings of 0ne run ball in his first major league start on May 15th against the Yankees.
The only time that the Marlins really threatened today was when Giancarlo Stanton reached on an error with one out in the fourth inning. He was then thrown out trying to steal second base right before a Casey McGehee double.
Stanton doubled with one out in the sixth, and stole third base, but was stranded there when catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia flew out to left.
DeGrom will start next against the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Friday.
