Mets, deGrom shut out Rockies
NEW YORK (AP) -- Jacob deGrom conceded only two hits and struck out 10 in seven innings, pitching the New York Mets past Colorado 3-0 on Wednesday night for their second consecutive shutout against the Rockies.
Yoenis Cespedes hit his first home run for the surging Mets, who have won 10 of 12. Juan Uribe stroked an RBI double in the fourth and Michael Cuddyer followed with a run-scoring single on a night when both players reached 1,500 career hits.
The Mets (62-52) matched their season high at 10 games over .500.
Last season's NL Rookie of the Year, deGrom (11-6) finished with his eighth career double-digit strikeout game and fourth this season.
Tyler Clippard quickly worked a perfect eighth, and Jeurys Familia got three outs for his 32nd save in 37 attempts.
Jorge De La Rosa (7-5) gave up two runs and four hits over six innings for the last-place Rockies.
