Mets' deGrom strikes out eight in seven shutout innings

Jacob deGrom punched out eight batters while firing seven shutout frames but had to settle for a no-decision as his team lost to the Marlins on Wednesday.

He left the game with a 1-0 lead but the Marlins came back to win in the final frame. DeGrom scattered four singles and two walks in the gem outing. His record holds at 4-0 with an awesome 1.54 ERA and 0.99 WHIP after 10 starts. He has 77 strikeouts and 16 walks in 58 1/3 innings.

Braves' Fried to start during doubleheader

Max Fried will be recalled to start the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets. Brandon McCarthy will get the ball in the second game. Fried has made four relief appearances with the Braves this season, allowing four runs with a 7/3 K/BB ratio over six innings. The left-hander holds a 3.12 ERA with 26 whiffs over 26 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season but should be considered a risky streaming option.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 4-1 in deGrom's last five road starts versus the Braves and are 19-8 in their last 27 games in Atlanta but are winless in their last four games versus their division rival overall.


The Braves are 11-4 in their last 15 games against the rest of the National League East this season.


The Mets haven't been able to get anything going against left-handed pitching this season and they won't have a good handle on Fried. The Braves, meanwhile, have mashed elite pitching but deGrom has held both left and right-handed hitters in check this season. The under is 7-2 in deGrom's last nine starts versus the Braves, is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings between these two teams and is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Atlanta.

The Pick: Mets/Braves under 8
