game series at Dodger Stadium

Jacob deGrom hit his first major league home run and shut down a bruising Washington Nationals lineup on three singles for eight dominant innings Sunday, giving the New York Mets a 5 1 win that prevented a four game sweep.

Fresh off pitching the Mets first complete game of the season in his previous start against the Cubs, deGrom turned in a complete effort, excelling with his arm http://www.metsfanaticsjersey.com/lucas-duda-jersey-c-18.html, bat and glove.

The NL East leading Nationals had been 6 0 at Citi Field this season and had battered the Mets in three games this week, never trailing while totaling 18 extra base hits. But they had trouble touching the blue stitched balls — used all around Major League Baseball on Father s Day — thrown by deGrom 6 3 .

The right hander mixed his fastball, slider and changeup well, fanned Bryce Harper with a 97 mph heater on his 105th and last pitch and walked off to a standing ovation. He struck out six and walked two, and the only run against him was unearned.

A career .199 hitter in 176 at bats coming in, deGrom also provided the biggest jolt. He hit the first pitch of the third inning from Joe Ross 3 3 over the wall in left center.

The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year, a converted infielder at Stetson University , kept holding down his helmet as he rounded the bases, making sure it didn t fly off his flyaway hair. His victory made the Mets 17 0 when their pitcher homers dating to a loss when Jason Isringhausen connected in 1996, the Elias Sports Bureau said.

T.J. Rivera had four hits for the Mets. A popup that Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy lost in the sun set up two New York runs in the fourth for a 3 1 lead.

Trea Turner stole four bases, setting a Nationals record. Harper extended his hitting streak to 11 games http://www.metsfanaticsjersey.com/asdrubal-cabrera-jersey-c-16.html, leading to Ryan Zimmerman s sacrifice fly in the first.

TRAINER S ROOM

Nationals RHP Shawn Kelley was put on the 10 day disabled list because of a strained muscle in his upper right back. The reliever is 3 2 with four saves and a 7.00 ERA in 22 games, giving up nine homers in 18 innings. He was on the DL in May with a lower back strain. RHP A.J. Cole was recalled from Triple A Syracuse. He pitched once for Washington in May http://www.metsfanaticsjersey.com/eric-campbell-jersey-c-17.html, winning a start vs. Philadelphia.

Mets Star LF Yoenis Cespedes got a planned day off after starting three straight games. He spent six weeks on the DL with a strained hamstring and returned last weekend.
