DeGrom lasted 6.2 innings and allowed just two earned runs, which gives him a major league-leading 1.81 ERA for the year. The Mets' hurler threw 113 pitches on the night and now has 21 straight starts without allowing any more than three runs. That run is inching closer to Dwight Gooden's team record of 24 straight such outings from 1985. He left with a 7-.3 lead on Monday, as his teammates were able to get to Yankees' All-Star Luis Severino.
Amed Rosario got the home run party started with a homer, while Jose Bautista, Michael Conforto, Todd Frazier, and Brandon Nimmo later left the ball park. This came together for the most home runs in a game for the Mets since June of 2017.
Severino was the victim of this outburst in his sixth loss of the year, as he remained in a tie with Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals for the major league lead in wins. He gave up four runs on seven hits over four innings, and surrendered two of the five Mets' home runs. It was his seventh straight start with at least three earned runs against him, as he has also given up 11 home runs in that span.
Miguel Andujar went deep in the loss for the Yankees, who have split the six games against the Mets. The Yankees will stay home to host the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. The Mets will continue on an interleague road trip against the Baltimore Orioles that same night.
