Mets Let Him Down Newsbeat

Mets’ Jacob deGrom Sets Record With 26th Straight Start Allowing Three Runs or Fewer

There’s something of a weird everyman appeal to this story, though I’m reasonably sure deGrom wishes it wasn’t so.

If the Mets were searching for a silver lining this season, look no further than the play of ace righthander Jacob deGrom.

On Tuesday, deGrom registered his 26th straight start allowing three runs or fewer, surrendering just two runs across seven innings against the Marlins. The previous record was set by Leslie “King” Cole in 1908. It took 108 years for his mark to be topped. Once again though, the Mets handed their ace a tough-luck loss. deGrom’s record dropped to 8-9 on the year.

His quality outing actually raised his league-leading ERA from 1.68 to 1.71. Such is life for a top Cy Young Award candidate. It would still be the lowest single-season ERA for a pitcher since Zack Greinke finished the 2015 season with a 1.66 figure for the Dodgers.

Jacob deGrom posts new MLB mark for consecutive games allowing 3 runs or fewer

Can you imagine what the reactions would be if he were playing on a remotely competent team?

The New York Mets ace went into Monday’s start against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 1.68 ERA, .978 WHIP, 224 strikeouts and 41 walks allowed in 182 innings pitched.

He left having pitched another gem, allowing two hits, and one earned run with six strikeouts in six innings pitched. And a place in the MLB history books.

The outing means deGrom is the first MLB pitcher to complete 25 straight starts allowing three runs or fewer, a record that dates back to 2013.
