Fangraphs Win Expectancy Chart
The Brewers remain sweepless in 2015. Though they did get shut(out)-eye today.
That was bad. That wasn't good at all. That joke reeked. It was pun-gent.
The Mets have been really bad on offense basically all year, but they've gotten by because their pitching kind of kicks butt. As it happens, that was true today, as well. Jacob deGrom did what he wanted to Brewers batters, allowing just four hits over eight innings while striking out seven batters.
The only Brewers to pick up a hit were Shane Peterson, Adam Lind, Scooter Gennett and Hector Perez. Perez had the Brewers only extra base hit with a double.
Meanwhile, Taylor Jungmann got into trouble occasionally but worked out of it to keep the game tied at 0-0 after five innings. Jungmann allowed four hits and two walks over that time, but also notched five strikeouts and now has a 2.74 ERA in the majors.
A rare run against Michael Blazek gave the Mets the win. Coming on in relief for the sixth inning, Blazek gave up a two-out single to Michael Cuddyer, which was followed up by a Wilmer Flores RBI double. Blazek did have three strikeouts in his one inning of work, however. The Mets got another run in the seventh as Jonathan Broxton left with runners on the corners and two outs and Will Smith gave up an RBI single.
The Brewers take on the Twins next. First pitch tomorrow is set for 7:10 CT.
