Johan Oviedo was hoping to be as good as his mound opponent Wednesday night.
Lotsa luck with that, kid.
Oviedo, the Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander with two major league victories, faced two-time Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets in the second game of a doubleheader. The outcome went as expected.
Oviedo didn’t make it out of the second inning while deGrom mowed through the Pirates’ lineup for seven dominant innings. The result was a 10-0 Mets’ victory and sweep of the day-night doubleheader at PNC Park.
