It’s like staring down the barrel of a .44 magnum revolver whenever an opposing batter steps into the box to face Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom, who currently owns a National League best 1.54 ERA.
DeGrom was once again denied his 50th win as a Met in his last outing, despite tossing 7.0 scoreless innings against the Marlins at Citi Field. It was a gut-wrenching 2-1 loss that resulted in the sixth no-decision of the season for Jake.
The indisputable ace of the team, deGrom will look for that elusive 50th win on Monday, when the Mets head to Atlanta for a critical four-game series against the Braves.
If Jacob gets the win, he’ll become just the 17th pitcher in franchise history to win 50 or more games while donning the Blue & Orange.
