The New York Mets welcome in the Miami Marlins for a four game series, which kicks off with a twi-night doubleheader. The Mets just took game one behind the right arm of Jacob deGrom. If the Mets can pull of a sweep of the doubleheader, they will be over .500 for the first time since May 2nd.

On to Game Two

Jacob deGrom was dominant today. He struggled over the first couple of innings but threw seven innings and only allowed two runs He has been dominant during day games throughout his career. His ERA was 1.86 during day games before today.

deGrom is certainly the guy you want on the mound to get your team back to .500. Walker Lockett is the game two starter and gave the Mets his best start back on July 20. He only allowed one run in five innings and will look to do the same in his spot start tonight.

Robinson Cano to the Injured List

Cano just has not been able to catch a break during his first season as a Met. Just as he was swinging the bat well, he strains his hamstring trying to leg out a double during Sunday’s 13-2 win in Pittsburgh. He was placed on the 10-day IL and Luis Guillorme was called up to replace his spot on the roster.

The Mets are now 2.5 games out of the second wild card spot and another win will put only the Milwaukee Brewers in front of them, before they catch up to the Washington Nationals, Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals.
