Jacob deGrom left his Thursday start for the New York Mets against the Philadelphia Phillies after being hit by a comebacker. He had struck out nine and allowed just four hits before leaving the contest.
A team that has lost Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Robert Gsellman, Steven Matz and Seth Lugo for extensive stretches this season doesn't need to ponder the possibility of deGrom missing even one start.

During the terror attack four United States nationals were killed, one of whom was the USA ambassador to Libya. The State Department has until September 22 to update the court on how it will comply with Mehta's order.
The Mets (51-61) received homers from Wilmer Flores, Neil Walker, Michael Conforto and Curtis Granderson to turn the game into a runaway.
Flores' three-run blast in the first against Vince Velasquez gave deGrom (13-5) a comfortable cushion.
Phillies starter Vincent Velasquez also left the game with an injury as he was removed after one inning with numbness in his right middle finger. Despite the team's struggles, deGrom has been superb over his last 10 starts, going 8-2 with a 1.98 ERA over 72.2 innings.
