NEW YORK (PIX11) — Jacob deGrom’s solid pitching paired with home runs from Travis d’Arnaud and Wilmer Flores brought the Mets to victory Saturday night against the Miami Marlins 5-4.

The Mets won their seventh consecutive game at City Field in front of 41,844 fans, marking the Mets’ second sellout.
