DeGrom Leaves With Hamstring Injury, Mets Edge Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (CBSNewYork/AP) — Jacob deGrom ‘s balky hamstring forced an untimely exit Wednesday night.

DeGrom left a rare rough outing because of a right hamstring spasm, then watched his teammates erase a four-run deficit in rallying for a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Phillies reliever Hector Neris (2-2) dropped the ball on the mound for a balk that moved the go-ahead run to second base in the ninth inning.

DeGrom had a surprisingly difficult two innings that pointed toward an apparent injury and could derail his bid for a third straight NL Cy Young Award.

He appeared to spike a water bottle in frustration in the dugout after a brief chat with pitching coach Jeremy Hefner and trainer Brian Chicklo.

Wheeler missed his last turn after he ripped the fingernail of his right middle finger when he tripped putting on a pair of jeans.
