Jacob deGrom’s stellar pitching and Curtis Granderson’s two home runs were enough to lift the New York Mets on Tuesday night.
- Mets 5 (64-55), Orioles (61-57)
- Win: Jacob deGrom (12-6)
- Loss: Kevin Gausman (2-5)
- Save: Jeurys Familia (33)
Tuesday night proved same old deGrom as he went 7.2 innings while only allowing one run and five hits. He also struck out six Baltimore Orioles batters.

Curtis Granderson was the other Mets star of the night. Grandy came away with two home runs (22), one of which included his seventh lead-off homer of the season, a new Mets record.

Michael Conforto even did his best Yoenis Cespedes impression in this one:

For the moment the Mets move to a five game lead over the Washington Nationals in the NL East.
