The Mets won the battle of long-haired aces last night down in Chavez Ravine, as Jacob deGrom calmly struck out 13 Dodgers and allowed a mere five hits. David Wright’s seventh inning, two-run single put the Mets beyond reach and New York has a chance to go back home with a 2-0 lead.

Wright not only delivered the big hit yesterday, he also started the ole cascading chair prank during the postgame presser, which deGrom really got Daniel Murphy with.

Yes, that sure sounds like a “Yowzers!” to me. Fine work, all involved.
