DeGrom goes distance, drops ERA to 1.71, Mets top Phils 3-1

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Jacob deGrom didn't take any chances of being lifted after a rain delay. Then, the New York Mets ace finished off one of his best performances of the year.

DeGrom pitched his first complete game of the season and lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.71, leading the Mets over the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 Saturday.

It appeared deGrom's day might be cut short due to a 41-minute rain delay that began in the middle of the fourth. Pitching coach Dave Eiland put a 45-minute limit on returning.
