He, however, managed to pitch one more inning after that.
DeGrom appeared to grimace after swinging and missing at strike three in the third inning. Paul Sewald relieved him in the fifth.
The Mets (17-11) have dropped 10 of 16 but may have absorbed their biggest loss in the fourth inning, when ace right-hander Jacob deGrom left with a hyperextended right elbow. "We won't have any information until tomorrow". Wheeler has been doing good since his return from multiple injuries, but he needs to show his worth very soon to this rotation.

"To a man, I think they all have a lot of confidence in their abilities", manager Brian Snitker said.
With their 7-0 whitewashing of the New York Mets on Wednesday, the surging Braves improved to 18-11 overall and supplanted a Mets club which furiously started the season at 11-1. Yes, he got beaten up in the first inning.
"Just throwing strike after strike", Snitker said.
The Braves and Mets battle in a three-game set at Citi Field today-Thursday.
Atlanta's starters entered with a 2.67 ERA over their previous 23 games. The over has cashed in three of those games, compared to four that went under. Johan Camargo led the Braves with a two run home run, while Ender Inciarte and Ryan Flaherty each added solo shots as well with Inciarte adding a double as part of his two RBI outing. The Braves have been playing terrific baseball to start the season and have put themselves within 1.5 games of the first place Mets.
DeGrom departed after four dominant innings Wednesday night. Cueto's ERA, 0.84, leads the majors. "I'd rather them not hit". Worse yet, here we go again with the most reliable individual, this time around.
"That last at-bat he had, I could just tell something wasn't right with the swing", Snitker said.
I hope they'll keep Soroka in Atlanta, but it is not insane to have him go back down for just a little while longer.
Soroka, a Bishop Carroll high school product and alumnus of the Pro Baseball Force/Calgary Redbirds program, was a first-round pick by the Braves in 2015 and quickly rose through the minor league ranks. He lasted 1 1/3 innings and struck out two with a walk, allowing one hit.
