NEW YORK – Jacob DeGrome matched his career-best strikeouts with 14 runs in eight innings, but like the two-time Sai Young Award winner, Miami Marlins closed New York with no attack. . Meets 3-0 on Saturday.
Dichrome (0-1) initially looked unbeaten until Jazz Sisholmzer hit a 100.4 mph in the second inning 0-2 above the strike zone. The home shot of the left-handed hitter reached the second floor of the right field and was rated at 402 feet.
This is the first 0-2 home run allowed by DeGrome in the Majors.
This is what Miami can do against Dichrome. The right-handed player hit 14 strikeouts for the fourth time in his career, including three against Marlins. He allowed one run, five wins, no one happened, and made 76 of his 95 pitches for strikes.
Marlins left-hander Trevor Rogers did not make it easy for the Mets, dropping 10 runs in six innings to drop Dickrom for the second time in nine major league starts. The 23-year-old recorded his first major league win against Dicrom on August 31, 5-3.
Rogers, who was selected in the first round until 2017, had no major issues against New York, allowing three wins and two walks, retiring 11 in a row in an extension of the game.
Rogers mixed a fastball with a slider and switch at an average speed of 95 mph, triggering 19 hits and misses between his 82 pitches. He ended his journey with strikes for Michael Confordo and Pete Alonso, waiting on two running backs to secure a 1-0 lead.
Following a perfect seventh inning by Dylan Floro, shortstop Miguel Rojas’ diving catcher helped Richard Blair steal a win from pinch hitter Kevin Pillar in the eighth inning, and Yimi Garcia finished the game. Success saves the close Anthony Boss job.
Meanwhile, Edwin Diaz, a close associate of New York, freed Digrom, who he struggled with. Starling Martே led the innings twice and scored a single in the next ad-bat of Jesus Aguilar. Rojas added an RBI single before Diaz was dragged away.
Mets fans mocked Concordo, he was out three times, he embraced defeat and started wondering what his final season in New York would be like. The perfect fielder will become a free agent in the fall.
The 32-year-old Dickrom is better than ever in his eighth major league season. Not only is he averaging 99 miles per hour with his fastball, but compared to the speed of 94 miles when he debuted in 2014, he plays it with more “lift”. The pitch is averaging one inch lower than it was in 2020, which makes hitters look closer to the strike zone.
Dicrom hit at least 10 batters for the 47th time, second only to Dwight Kudane in Mets history after Tide Sever’s 60.
The New York starters have four quality starts in the team’s first five games, but are 2-3 for the season.
