Simulated Recap: Video Game deGrom Just Not The Same

Sometimes, we may forget how unrealistic video games and simulations can be. This game between the Mets and Reds is a perfect example of that.

Not only did Jacob deGrom enter the game with a 3.89 ERA, but he’d be knocked out of this start after allowing five earned over 4.2 innings. As if that wasn’t all ridiculous enough, the Mets gave him some run support.

That mostly came in the form of two Yoenis Cespedes homers and a homer from Pete Alonso. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as deGrom would take the loss in this 7-6 game.
