Jacob deGrom Fans Nine in a Row as Mets Split Doubleheader

DENVER — Jacob deGrom struck out nine straight batters against Colorado on Saturday, falling one shy of matching Tom Seaver’s major league record.

Seaver set the consecutive strikeouts record against San Diego on April 22, 1970, fanning his final 10 batters in a 19-strikeout performance.

Manuel Margot hit a tiebreaking two-run homer, Tyler Glasnow overcame cramps and poor control to pitch five innings of one-run ball and the Rays held off the struggling Yankees, 6-3, Saturday.

Fans in the Bronx again booed the team as they lost their fourth straight, but the crowd was more restrained a day after some hurled baseballs and other items on the field late in an 8-2 loss to the Rays.

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez was hit in his right throwing hand by a foul ball in the fourth and exited an inning later.
