Lorenzo Cain drove in three runs and robbed Todd Frazier of a homer with another spectacular catch, helping the Milwaukee Brewers beat Jacob deGrom and the New York Mets 10-2 on Friday night.
Milwaukee had lost seven of eight, but it roughed up a shaky deGrom after the start of the game was delayed for 2 hours, 42 minutes due to rain. Eric Thames hit a two-run double during the Brewers’ five-run third, and Orlando Arcia added a two-run single.
DeGrom (2-3) walked three and hit two batters over four innings in his first start since April 14. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner was placed on the 10-day injured list after he reported soreness in his throwing elbow last week, but had an MRI on Monday that did not show any problems.
The right-hander struck out seven on a damp, chilly night at Citi Field. He has a 9.69 ERA in his last three starts.
