Jacob deGrom looked great on the mound for the most part, the 2018 National League Cy Young award winner went 7 innings, giving 2 runs on just 4 hits while striking out 7. He’s lowered his ERA as it’s now 3.60 after Monday’s contest.
Jeff McNeil picked up 2 hits off of Paddack, that seems like a ridiculous feat in itself but the super utility man is now hitting .352 after going 2-4.
The Mets have Noah Syndergaard (2-3, 5.02 ERA) on the mound against another one of the Padres rookie pitchers. Paul Quantrill (0-1, 3.18 ERA), son of former Major League pitcher Chad Quantrill, will make his second Major League start at 10:10 PM.
