Simulated Recap: deGrom Better Than Flaherty

The Cardinals and their fans think Jack Flaherty can supplant Jacob deGrom as the NL Cy Young. If this simulated game is any indication, that’s just not going to happen:

deGrom allowed just one run over 6.1 whereas the Mets knocked Flaherty out in the fifth. In that fifth, the Mets scored three runs on a Jeff McNeil RBI single and then a Michael Conforto two RBI single.

The Mets also saw a Pete Alonso homer and Amed Rosario RBI single. Edwin Diaz closed out the Mets 5-3 win and sweep of the Cardinals.
