Nick Martinez (1-2) gave up one unearned run and four hits over five innings, ending an 11-start winless streak that dated to August 5, 2015.

"All night we didn't get too many good looks", Manager Mike Scioscia said.

Unfortunately for the Mets, their vaunted pitching staff - which was supposed to be led by four fire-balling 20-something starters - hasn't been meeting expectations. DeGrom was the previous pitcher to achieve the feat on April 28, when he tossed seven innings against the Washington Nationals.

New York Mets' Jose Reyes (7) celebrates with Michael Conforto (30) after Conforto hit a home run during the seventh inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Angels Friday, May 19, 2017, in New York.

"Jake did a tremendous job tonight", manager Terry Collins said.

More than anything, the Mets entered Friday's play needing length from deGrom, who had pitched beyond the sixth just twice in his first eight starts. Collins is 498-514 in seven seasons with NY. "We didn't break camp with imagination". "And we've got to get them right, so that as we head into the big months of summer". "When we did get a couple of looks, he made some pitches and got out of it".

DeGrom struck out nine and cruised into the seventh inning, but he came down with a blister issue on his right ring finger before loading the bases with nobody out.

Andrelton Simmons led off with a double.

Pinch hitter Ben Revere then blooped a ball to shallow center that Reyes bobbled and caught. The ball hit the palm of Reyes' before he snared it out of the air.

"That ball drops in in the last seven days, for sure", Collins said.

After multiple visits by Mets coaches and a trainer, DeGrom survived the seventh with a strikeout, a juggling catch by shortstop Jose Reyes and Cameron Maybin's flyout. "You have to tip your cap to him".

Jerry Blevins got two outs in his major league-leading 25th appearance, Paul Sewald recorded an out in the eighth and Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his fifth save.

Curtis Granderson had an RBI double in the first inning for the Mets (17-23), who returned home following the franchise's first 0-6 road trip since 1999. NY saw Matt Harvey struggle with three runs scoring on six hits and four free passes through 5.1 innings before Rafael Montero served up a walk off homer in the 11th to absorb the loss.

Behind a much-needed impressive outing from righthander Jacob deGrom, the Mets defeated the Angles, 3-0, Friday night at Citi Field, halting a seven-game losing streak. "Hopefully, we can take something from this win and hopefully continue to play the way we're supposed to play".

Phillies 7, Pirates 2: Jeremy Hellickson allowed just two hits over six innings before leaving with an injury and Philadelphia pulled away from Pittsburgh to end a four-game losing streak.
