New York Mets pitcher, Jacob deGrom struck out 13 over seven scoreless innings on Friday night game againstNew York Mets, helping The Mets win the game 3-1, also Mets pitcher, Daniel Murphy homered off a star-crossed Clayton Kershaw.

DeGrom, playing is his second major league season, said “Before the game, I was pretty nervous.” But after feeling more confident, nothing could stop him from helping his team win the first game in the NL Division Series. He limited the Dodgers to five hits and walked one. It was a great night for the player, who matched Tom Seaver playoff record set in 1973 in the NL Championship Series, and became the first Mets pitcher with 10 or more strikeouts in the playoffs since Dwight Gooden in Game 1 of the 1988 NLCS at Dodger Stadium.

“There were a couple times tonight, 3-2, where I threw a couple changeups. Last year, I probably wouldn’t have done that,” said deGrom.

For Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, this was the seventh playoff homer of his career, and fifth straight postseason loss. He’s the last season’s NL MVP, and allowed three runs and four hits in 6? innings, struck out 11 and walked four. He said, “I got outpitched, plain and simple.”

During the seventh inning, three of Kershaw’s walks came, before this, Mets captain David Wright had a two-out, two-run single off Pedro Baez that put New York up 3-0. Wright, who wasn’t able to play 115 games, because of injuries this season, said “It’s been nine years since I felt this,” and “That’s about as sweet as I thought it was going to be.”

We’ll be looking forward Saturday night Game 2, where Dodgers will try to even the series.
