Jacob deGrom did not disappoint as the lone New York Mets representative in Tuesday's All-Star Game in Cincinnati.

DeGrom struck out the side in the sixth in his lone inning on the mound.

Oakland's Stephen Vogt, Cleveland's Jason Kipnis, and Detroit's Jose Iglesias all went down swinging.

DeGrom required only 10 pitches. He sat at 97-98 mph with his fastball.

Major League Baseball announced that deGrom was the first player in All-Star history to strike out three batters in an inning of 10 pitches or fewer, but ESPN and Elias Sports Bureau research determined that could not be substantiated because documented All-Star pitch counts do not go back more than two decades.
