Jacob DeGrom tied Bob Gibson’s quality start record tonight in a unreal 14 strikeout performance in Miami against the Marlins.
Jacob deGrom threw his 26th straight quality start, tied with Bob Gibson in 1967-68 for the longest streak in MLB history (ER was official in both leagues in 1913). He's the 5th pitcher since the mound was lowered in 1969 to strike out 14 batters and hit a home run in a game. pic.twitter.com/ovMTiHMgDs

Oh and he added a home run in the game? Is there anything DeGrom can’t do?
Jacob deGrom knows how to handle a bat, too ?

In his last 42 innings, Jacob deGrom has hit as many homers (1) as he has allowed.

And he knew he had a career high as he couldn’t even pretend in the post game interview.
deGrom doesn’t even pretend.

Provided the Mets bullpen doesn't blow it tonight, deGrom is on pace for a 33-0 season with 0.00 ERA. Could be good enough for a second straight Cy Young.

Ok so Jacob DeGrom is not hittable and it’s just not fair. And tonight marked his 26th straight quality start, which ties Bob Gibson for most in a row all time. I’d be shocked if DeGrom doesn’t have another quality start in his next start and first home start of the season.
