Whoever’s fault it may have been, and the end of the day, it’s the New York Mets who were worst hit. With the battle for the NL East title, this could be quite fatal for the team. Though the 3-game series between the Braves and the Mets could serve as a decider, where the Mets have a good chance, this could be one of the worst outing Jacob deGrom has ever had.
