On June 2 2018 — 2018 – Jacob deGrom matches a career high set just two weeks earlier by racking up 13 strikeouts in 7 innings in a start against the Cubs, but the NL ERA leader has to settle for another no-decision as the game is decided in 14 innings. Seven relievers add another 11 strikeouts to give the Mets 24, 2 shy of the all-time mark for an extra-inning game, but it’s the Cubs who break through with 6 runs in the top of the 14th, highlighted by Albert Almora’s two-run double off Buddy Baumann, to win, 7 – 1. Luke Farrell pitches 5 scoreless innings in relief to pick up the win.
