FSL Playoffs: DeGrom Leads St. Lucie To 2-1 Victory Over Jupiter To Force Decisive Game Tonight
Starting pitcher Jacob deGrom tossed a gem last night in a must-win game for the St. Lucie Mets who were facing elimination in the first round of the FSL Divisional Championship Series. The Mets lost the first game in the best of three series on Tuesday and needed to win back to back games to advance.
DeGrom threw six shutout innings and secured a 2-1 victory over the Jupiter Hammerheads to even the series at one game apiece. DeGrom allowed just four hits, walked two and struck out five and continued his outstanding performance this season.
The Mets got on the board in the first thanks to a Richard Lucas double that drove home Danny Muno to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. After Jupiter tied it up in the seventh, the Mets came right back to take the 2-1 lead when Alonzo Harris singled to left to score T.J. Rivera who had singled ahead of him.
Adam Kolarek pitched the final two frames to earn the save and keep St. Lucie’s season alive.
The final and deciding game of the series will take place at Digital Domain Park tonight at 6:30 PM. Chase Huchingson will be on the mound for the Mets while Robert Morey is the scheduled starter for the Hammerheads.
