MILWAUKEE -- It took until the final day for a victory, but the New York Mets did not come back empty from their excursion to Toronto, Atlanta and Milwaukee.
The Mets snapped a seven-game losing streak and returned to .500. They scored only 11 runs during their 1-7 trip.
Michael Cuddyer had a two-out single in the sixth against reliever Michael Blazek, then scored from first base on Wilmer Flores' double into the left-field corner for the game’s opening run. Lucas Duda added a run-scoring infield single with the bases loaded an inning later, which plated deGrom.
Jeurys Familia handled the ninth inning in his first action since experiencing left groin tightness on Friday at Atlanta.
The Mets (37-37) avoided only their third winless road trip of eight or more games in franchise history.
DeGrom (8-5) allowed four hits and struck out seven in a 100-pitch effort. He lowered his season ERA to 2.15.
In Atlanta last Friday, deGrom departed with a 1-0 lead in the eighth, only to watch Sean Gilmartin allow two inherited runners to score in what became a 2-1 defeat. This time he handed the ball right to Familia.
Outta here: Terry Collins was ejected in the fourth inning by Larry Vanover after the second-base ump -- seemingly incorrectly -- ruled Darrell Ceciliani out on a steal attempt. The Mets already had used their challenge in the second inning on a failed bid to get an out call at the plate overturned. On that play, Cuddyer was retired by center fielder Gerardo Parra while trying to score from second base on Kevin Plawecki's single.
What’s next: The Mets return home to face the Cincinnati Reds. Noah Syndergaard (2-4, 4.03 ERA) opposes right-hander Johnny Cueto (4-4, 2.98). A pregame moment of silence will be observed to remember Nelson Doubleday and Darryl Hamilton.
