Quotes from the visitor’s clubhouse … Mets manager Terry Collins
On how deGrom finds a way to get through games: “Well, he corrects himself during the game. I mean, you look back and really the worst pitch he threw was the hanging slider to Dyson. So, he comes off and gets himself right, and doesn’t do it again. He doesn’t get too down about it. He’s got to go about his job, and he kept us in the game. We had lots of opportunities. We just didn’t score him any runs.”
On if he was surprised that deGrom was able to come back from struggling early to dominate late: “Good ones can. The good ones can do it. That’s why you hear the statement so many times. If you face the good pitchers, you’d better bet them early. If you let them off the ropes they can put you away, and that’s what he did.”
Seattle is 11-7 in its last 18 games and are 31-24 in its last 55 games.
