New York (AP) – Jacob deGrom of the Mets Ace started Wednesday night with a pain in his right shoulder after three perfect innings, but at the historic start of the season there was yet another risk of injury for the NL Cy Young Award winner.

With a start after being pulled from a jewel with right flexor tendinitis against San Diego, DeGrom walked through the clubhouse tunnel right after finishing third against the Chicago Cubs. He defeated eight of the nine thugs, including the last seven.

DeGrom seemed to frown after three pitches to Eric Sogard. He threw 51 balls and hit pitcher Robert Stock with the last 99 mph fastball.

Right-handed people lowered ERA to 0.54. This was the pitcher’s best record with 11 starts. According to STATS, he is the first pitcher to strike with three perfect innings at least eight times since at least 1901.

DeGrom tossed a six innings scoreless one-hit ball against the Padres on Friday night before leaving due to flexion issues. He underwent an MRI the next day and showed no damage and resumed his normal interstart routine. He began his usual four-day rest period on Wednesday.

DeGrom also spent nearly two weeks on his injured list in May and has struggled with tension on his side and back that season.

DeGrom wowed a large crowd from Citi Field with two RBI singles three days before his 33rd birthday. He drove six runs that year, allowing only four deserved runs and one hit that increased his batting average to .423.

DeGrom was replaced by right-handed Shawn Reed Folly. Shawn Reed Folly allowed Anthony Rizzo to home a point for the fourth time.
