DeGrom’s 15 strikeouts, 2-hitter lead Mets over Nats 6-0

NEW YORK (AP) — Jacob deGrom struck out a career-high 15, pitched a two-hitter and boosted the Mets’ sagging offense with a go-ahead double from the No. 8 spot in the batting order, leading New York over the Washington Nationals 6-0. DeGrom has struck out 43 in his last three starts and 50 overall this season, breaking the major league record for most in a pitcher’s first four starts set just last weekend by Cleveland ace Shane Bieber with 48. DeGrom lowered his career ERA to 2.55 and overtook Tom Seaver’s 2.57 as New York’s franchise leader.
