DeGrom makes successful return, Mets sweep Braves
ATLANTA (AP) – Jacob deGrom made a successful return to the mound after tending to his ill infant son and an injury, pitching the New York Mets past the Atlanta Braves 3-2 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Back in the rotation after healing from a sore right lat muscle and seeing his son recover from a health concern, deGrom (2-0) gave up one run and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked none and struck out three.
The Mets went 7-2 on a three-city road trip. Atlanta lost its fifth straight game.
Aaron Blair (0-1) allowed three earned runs in 5 1/3 innings in his major league debut.
