Jacob deGrom has feasted against the Atlanta Braves. Julio Teheran has done likewise against the New York Mets.
Something will have to give on Tuesday when deGrom (3-6, 3.38) goes toe-to-toe against Teheran (5-4, 2.92) in the second game of a three-game series in Atlanta between the two N.L. East rivals.
DeGrom, the reigning Cy Young Award winner, allowed two earned runs over seven innings while striking out eight against St. Louis in his last outing on June 13. In three appearances in June, deGrom has a 2.29 ERA -- allowing no more than two runs in a game -- with 25 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings.
