Mets Finally Get Their Dream Rotation

It took four months, but the New York Mets finally got a taste of that dream rotation they were looking forward to this season, as Jacob deGrom, one of the best pitchers of this generation took the mound for the first time in over a year. And he was dazzling. 

He touched 102 mph in a perfect first inning, on the way to a masterful return, going five innings, allowing just three hits and one run. 

He threw 59 pitches, 13 of which were over 100 mph. 

“To get out there and pitch and be healthy, that’s the reward,” deGrom said postgame. 

Now paired up with Max Scherzer—another of the greatest pitchers of this generation—the Mets hope to ride that insane 1-2 punch down the stretch and into a long playoff run.
