The Mets get another shutout as Jacob deGrom K's 10 and Yoenis Cespedes gets his first HR as Met. Mets are now 10 games over the .500 mark and have Noah Syndergaard on the mound as they go for the four-game sweep of the NL's best hitting team
The pitching...absent of a reliable lefty specialist in the pen...definitely looks like it could carry the team in a series. However, the offense remains a concern because there is no consistency and they strike out WAY too much for a team that does not hit home runs. I can understand K's with teams like the Blue Jays and Yankees...but the "selectivity" that is constantly talked about translates into too many strikeouts.
