Right-hander Jacob deGrom is the reigning National League Cy Young Award winner, but one wouldn’t necessarily know it the way the Twins handled him in a 14-8 victory over the Mets on Tuesday night at Citi Field.
How dominating was deGrom prior to Tuesday’s tilt? He pitched 26 consecutive scoreless innings and added another inning to the total before the Twins ended the streak starting in the second inning. Twins catcher Mitch Garver started things off by homering over the center-field wall off an 0-1 pitch in the top of the second inning.

The Mets tied the score in the bottom of the frame thanks to an Amed Rosario RBI double, but deGrom’s third inning proved it just wasn’t his day. Jorge Polanco scored on a wild pitch, while Eddie Rosario and Garver homered to make it a four-run game. deGrom’s quality-start streak came to an end at 26, tying Bob Gibson in the history books.
