Flores slam, deGrom 3 for 3 as Mets romp over Brewers 14-1
NEW YORK (AP) - -
Wilmer Flores hit a grand slam off Matt Garza from the No. 9 slot in the batting order, sparking a 10-run fourth inning and leading the New York Mets to a 14-1 romp over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. Jacob deGrom had three singles - including two in the fourth - to become the second pitcher since at least 1914 to have three hits batting eighth, according to STATS.
Flores followed deGrom's second hit of the night with a drive into the left-field party deck, an area where the Mets brought in the fence before the 2012 season, for a 6-0 lead.
He became the first starting NL position player to hit a grand slam from the No. 9 hole in an NL ballpark, STATS said.
DeGrom (4-4) gave up one run in six innings, while Garza (2-5) allowed a career-high 10 runs in 3 1-3 innings.
