Jacob deGrom pitched one-hit ball over five scoreless innings as the Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-2 Monday in a doubleheader opener.

Jeff McNeil came off the injured list and singled as a pinch-hitter for deGrom during the fifth, then scored on Dominic Smith’s three-run double.
Seth Lugo and Edwin Díaz finished the two-hitter, with Díaz getting his 15th save.
Kyle Muller (0-1) pitched one-hit ball over four innings in his first big league start.
