DeGrom stars in Mets’ 4000th win

NEW YORK (AP) — Rookie Jacob deGrom struck out 11 in seven shutout innings and also delivered a table-setting hit from the No. 8 spot in the batting order as the New York Mets tagged All-Star Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves 8-3 Tuesday night.

Curtis Granderson kept up his resurgence with a leadoff home run and Lucas Duda doubled twice, singled and drew two walks. Daniel Murphy also doubled twice and third baseman David Wright added two of New York’s 18 hits and made a nifty catch.

The shaggy-haired deGrom (2-5) pitched the Mets to their third win in a row, and the franchise’s 4,000th victory since starting out as an expansion team in 1962. Atlanta has lost three straight.

DeGrom scattered seven hits, walked none and matched a career best for strikeouts.
