deGrom Dominant in ASG Inning
The National League may have lost last night, 6-3, in the 2015 MLB All-Star Game, but New York Mets flamethrower Jacob deGrom certainly did not disappoint in his one inning of work on the mound.
deGrom struck out the side in the top half of the sixth inning. He took care of Stephen Vogt, Jason Kipnis, and Jose Iglesias on just 10 pitches.
deGrom's performance helped illicit several reactions on the twitter-sphere:
And then Buster Olney, who you can hear every Thursday at 5:15 on our station with Armen and Levack:
The Mets are 47-42 this season and are just 2.0 games back behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East race.
deGrom is 9-6 this season with a 2.14 ERA. He finished the year 9-6 in 2014 and earned National League Rookie of the Year honors. He, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard, and Zack Wheeler make up a great quartet of young arms in Queens.
With the win, the American League will have homefield advantage in the 2015 World Series.
