DeGrom (7 IP, 5 H, 3 BB, 7 K) recorded his final out by retiring Jeff Baker on a lineout to right field on pitch No. 97 to strand two runners in the seventh.

Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia handled the final six outs to secure deGrom’s first career victory.

The Mets have a 2.83 team ERA over their past 30 games.

The teams have combined to score 10 runs through three games of the series (Mets 1-0, Marlins 3-2, Mets 4-0).

Stony Brook University product Tom Koehler retired the first 11 batters he faced, until David Wright produced a two-out single in the fourth.

After a walk to Lucas Duda advanced Wright to second base, the captain scored on Chris Young’s bloop single (although Duda was tagged out between second and third base). Wright (3-for-4) added an RBI single in the sixth as the Mets took a 2-0 lead.

Since going 2-for-39 in a 12-game stretch, Wright now has a six-game hitting streak.

Duda belted a two-run homer in the ninth against Chris Hatcher, which plated Wright.

Ouch: The Marlins lost two infielders Saturday. Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria was a pregame scratch due to right elbow soreness. Second baseman Rafael Furcal departed with left hamstring cramping after failing to beat out a double-play grounder that ended the third inning.

What’s next: Jonathon Niese (3-4, 2.67 ERA) opposes rookie right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (1-1, 5.60) in Sunday’s 1:10 p.m. series finale. DeSclafani grew up in Howell, N.J.
