MIAMI -- Jacob deGrom officially has a major league win to his credit.
In his eighth major league start, deGrom tossed a career-high-matching seven innings and the Mets beat the Miami Marlins 4-0 on Saturday.
New York Mets
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.
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).
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.
