The Mets were in need of some type of spark and they got just what they needed in the form of their current ace Jacob deGrom. deGrom was masterful in his two starts this week as he went 2-0 with a 0.53 ERA while striking out 12 over 17 innings.

The Mets have a long climb ahead of them if they want to get back into the picture but with deGrom finding his groove on the mound it may make those chances a bit better.
