In his last 33 1/3 innings, deGrom has allowed one run, but the Mets are just 2-4 in those games. The Mets’ bullpen has not been kind to deGrom, who took his sixth no-decision in eight starts last time out, despite throwing seven scoreless innings.

To Be Announced

The Mets are considering using an “opener” -- either Seth Lugo or Robert Gsellman -- in the first inning of Game 2. The bigger question is who pitches the bulk of the game. Left-hander P.J. Conlon is a candidate, or it could just be a bullpen game.

McCarthy has produced his four highest average fastball velocities within each of his past four starts. The improved command in his past two outings has pushed him past the frustration felt when he gave up two of his highest hits-allowed totals.
