The All-Star closer became the sixth active pitcher to reach 200 saves.

“Unbelievable,” deGrom said. “He’s done a great job and I’m sure he’ll feel comfortable every time he comes out.”

The Mets recorded an MLB-best 15th shutout. It was his first 1-0 victory over Philadelphia since he had a hit for RA Dickie at Citi Field 12 years ago.

“The star of the show was the pitching staff,” Alonso said.

DeGrom (2-0) allowed two hits and failed to walk in his third start after spending the first half of the season on the disabled list. So far this year he has had 6 hits, 28 strikeouts, and 16 2/3 innings in which he has walked 1.

“I don’t really know what’s coming back, but last time I saw some things that felt like they were mechanically out and trying to adjust them while going through a pretty slow process. I’ll be back,” deGrom said. “It seems to have paid off a little.”

The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner opened the game with a 101.1 mph fastball that knocked out Bryson Stott and allowed a soft single to Rhys Hoskins. After Alec Bohm landed on the ground with a force spray, deGrom fanned JT Realmoot with three straight sliders.

“It’s nothing like the last time I played him,” Hoskins said.

This was deGrom’s second double-digit strikeout game since his return, and his 55th in the entire regular season. He improved to 9-1 in 20 career starts against the Phillies.

“He’s doing very well,” Diaz said. “He can do whatever he wants as a hitter.”

Philadelphia wasted a great performance from Aaron Nola (8-9), who allowed four hits in eight innings. As a right-hander, he had eight strikeouts and one walk, but he went 0-3 in four starts against New York this year.

Nora became the first Philadelphia pitcher to pitch a complete game against the New York Mets since Kyle Kendrick in 2013.

The Phillies finished with three hits.

New York jumped forward for the first time. Sterling He singled for Marte, stole second, and Real Muto’s throw put him third on his error before Alonso’s soft to right field he scored on a single.

After Alonso’s hit, Luis Guillorme and Jeff McNeill hit back-to-back singles with one out in the second inning. Nora retired for his 17th straight, and McNeill took the lead for his eighth on a walk.

“We know[the scores]are going to be lower when we play against deGrom,” Nola said. “So it’s going to be a fight all night. And I’m gone.”
