The Mets' 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on Wednesday night at Citi Field served as Brandon Nimmo's entry for the catch of the year.
The New York Mets put on a thrilling performance Wednesday night at thumping Citi Field, beginning with another stingy outing by Jacob deGrom.
The Mets evened a three-game series between the top two teams in the National League thanks to a two-run home run by Starling Marte against All-Star lefty Tyler Anderson (13-3).
In seven innings, deGrom had nine strikeouts while clocking 102 mph on the radar gun. In addition to walking one, he saw three hits.
“It was awesome,” deGrom said. “That was a great atmosphere out there. The fans were in it the whole time.”
“Jumped up, the ball hit my glove and I knew it didn’t bounce out once it got in there. And then all the emotions spilled out," Nimmo said. “I’m still really ecstatic about it. It was one of the best plays I’ve ever made.”
Next up New York Mets face off against Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday.
