Five Things You Should Know About The Game On Tuesday
1) Jacob deGrom once again claimed that he held a dominance and gained 14 career opportunities throughout his career. In this case, everything worked for deGrom, as he confused things each time he went through the Marlins lineup. He allowed only two strokes and hit a blow against his seven-inning outing with 114 strokes. DeGrom also helped with a solo homer at the top of third place.

5) It was another rough day for Brandon Nimmo at the plate, finishing the night 0-4 with a walk and run. He returns to Flushing with an average of 100, and he hopes the home field will reverse things.
