Jacob deGrom hurt in Mets' 7-0 loss to Braves

Paul Sewald took the loss, falling to 0-2 this season after giving up three runs in three innings of relief.

"I think we're all going to be really exhausted", Gary Soroka said. "Something that got a little sore and I just wanted to get him out of there". "We'll just have to see what the results are and go from there". "Obviously Jake is one of the main cogs here on the team and for the rotation, really sets the tone for us". DeGrom had allowed just two hits and struck out six, including four straight at one point.

"I didn't want to get caught in a moment too much", he said.

The right-hander was in the midst of one of his strongest stretches as a pro, having extending his scoreless streak to 18 1/3 innings with Wednesday's abbreviated performance. He returned to the dugout and told manager Mickey Callaway his arm hurt but he wanted to keep pitching. That might be a small thread, but with the Mets' injury history you have to hold onto what you can. Swanson struck out in his first two at-bats before being replaced by Johan Camargo in the field for the sixth inning.

After that, a quick wave might create scattered storms late Sunday and again late Tuesday , but that seems like a long way off. A mix of supercell and multicell modes are expected, given effective shear (change of winds with heights) around 30-35 kt.

It is this dominance deGrom has enjoyed recently that would make this a big blow to the Mets. Freddie Freeman's double drove in newbies Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. before Nick Markakis added an RBI single. The eight-year veteran argued with plate umpire Lance Barrett during a 7-0 loss to Sean Newcomb and the Braves on Wednesday night.

The Mets are just 1-6 in deGrom's last seven home starts but have won 20 of his last 26 starts after scoring two runs or less in their previous game.

The Braves poured it on with four in the eighth against Gsellman. Ryan Flaherty then made it a back-to-back night and put the Braves up a touchdown at 7-0 with his second homer to straight away center.

AJ Ramos pitched a 1-2-3 ninth with two strikeouts and no walks (surprisingly). The southpaw owns a 4.23 ERA and 34/14 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings over five starts this season. They play again on Thursday afternoon, which is probably best since Callaway went home not knowing what the deal was with deGrom. "He's a big part of our team". He has worked at Newsday since August 31, 1998, and has been in his current position since July 5, 2004.
