DeGrom took a four-hitter into the eighth inning, Curtis Granderson hit two solo homers and the New York Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Tuesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
Making his first appearance at Camden Yards, deGrom (12-6) gave up one run, five hits and a walk in 7 2-3 innings. The right-hander struck out six and lowered his ERA to 1.98, second-best in the National League behind the Dodgers' Zack Greinke.
The shaggy-haired deGrom is 9-2 with a 1.44 ERA in 16 outings since May 11, and New York has won each of his last seven starts - a run that included his first appearance at Tampa Bay.
Granderson connected off Kevin Gausman (2-5) on the game's second pitch, providing deGrom a lead he never relinquished. Granderson also homered in the fifth inning for the first-place Mets.
Granderson has 16 RBIs in his last 16 games. He has 24 HRs versus the Orioles, the most against any team. Curtis also hit his franchise-record seventh leadoff homer of the season, breaking a tie with Jose Reyes (2006).
