Nimmo, deGrom, Diaz and Marte lead the Mets to defeat the Dodgers

Brandon Nimmo preserved Jacob deGrom’s win with a terrific catch off the wall, while Edwin Diaz took the mound to the music of Timmy Trumpet live at Citi Field, where he pulled off the save as the New York Mets overcame Wednesday 2-1 at the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Starling Marte hit a two-run homer off All-Star left-hander Tyler Anderson (13-3) and the Mets evened the series between the top two teams in the National League. This Thursday, the third meeting will take place.

Mookie Betts homered off deGrom (4-1), giving him 32 homers for the year. But that wasn’t enough for the Dodgers, during a tight pitching duel with playoff overtones that lasted 2 hours and 19 minutes.

In his sixth start of the season after recovering from injury, deGrom hit 102 mph on the radar gun and struck out nine in seven innings. He gave up three hits and didn’t walk.

With the score at 2-1, Justin Turner hit a pitch from deGrom to center field. Nimmo caught the ball near the crest of the fence, with a sensational leap.

For the Dodgers, no Latin Americans hit.

For the Mets, Dominican Starling Marte 4-1 with one run scored and two produced. Puerto Ricans Francisco Lindor 4-1, Tomás Nido 3-1. The Venezuelan Eduardo Escobar 3-1.
