MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo talked to the Mets ace on potentially winning another Cy Young award after his brilliantly pitched game on Monday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
deGrom, the winner of last year’s Cy Young Award had this to tell reporters. “Last year, I wouldn’t say it was mine to lose, but I was thinking about it a lot more. I think having won one, it’s still the goal, but the bigger picture is this team trying to go to the playoffs and get in the World Series.”
deGrom went seven innings while giving up just one run on three hits and striking out 11, the sole run given up was on a Wilmer Flores home run.
