Braves Matt Wisler Gets the Win in His MLB Debut Against the Mets
ATLANTA (AP) – Matt Wisler allowed only one run in eight innings in his major league debut to outpitch Jacob deGrom, and Jace Peterson hit a two-run double in the eighth to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 2-1 win over the New York Mets on Friday night.
Wisler (1-0) allowed one run and six hits and no walks in eight innings. The NL East-leading Mets’ only run off Wisler came on Michael Cuddyer’s run-scoring single in the sixth.
Wisler was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett before the game. The 22-year-old right-hander was San Diego’s top prospect before coming to the Braves as a big part of the April 5 trade that sent closer Craig Kimbrel to the Padres.
Until the eighth inning, deGrom (7-5) was dominant on his 27th birthday. He allowed two runs and four hits, including two in the eighth.
