Mets scratch deGrom on rainy afternoon vs Phillies
New York manager Mickey Callaway said earlier he would not start deGrom if there was a chance of a rain delay in the game.
Corey Oswalt started in place of deGrom, pitching in a steady drizzle.
DeGrom has made 25 consecutive starts allowing three runs or fewer, tying the major league record set by King Cole of the 1910 Chicago Cubs. DeGrom is 8-8 with a major league-leading 1.68 ERA. He is 3-6 in his last 13 starts despite a 1.85 ERA in that stretch.
