It was as easy as one, two, three for New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game, it was easier than that.

Sometimes, guys just decide to turn the head of every baseball fan in the world.
deGrom – a first-time MLB All-Star – entered the game in the top of the sixth-inning. He faced Oakland A’s’ Stephen Vogt, Cleveland Indians’ Jason Kipnis, and Detroit Tigers’ Jose Iglesias.
What he proceeded to do was calmly strikeout all three batters in order. Joe Buck and company were pretty damn impressed.
In fact, the entire living baseball world is now impressed. deGrom’s movement and control while throwing to Yadier Molina was absolutely filthy.
The only other Met to ever strike out the side in an All-Star Game was Doc Gooden back in 1984.
He and Matt Harvey heading down the stretch to the 2015 MLB season might be a dangerous duo to contend with. That, my friends, is probably the biggest understatement of the decade.
