ATLANTA — 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 theAtlanta 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.
After deGrom departed, left-hander Sean Gilmartin gave up Peterson's two-run double over the head of Juan Lagares in center field.
Jason Grilli pitched the ninth for his 19th save. With one out, Wilmer Flores reached on third baseman Juan Uribe's fielding error. With Flores still on first, Grilli struck out pinch-hitter Darrell Ceciliani to end the game.
Andrelton Simmons, who had a second-inning single for Atlanta's first hit, led off the eighth with a double to left field. One out later, pinch-hitter Pedro Ciriaco's infield hit left runners at first and third. Peterson gave Atlanta the lead with his double off Gilmartin.
DeGrom took his first loss since May 11.
Wisler opened with five scoreless innings before the Mets pushed a run across in the sixth. Ruben Tejada led off with a double to left field and moved to third on Lucas Duda's fly ball to right. Cuddyer's grounder took a high bounce over Chris Johnson at third base for a run-scoring single.
It was the only inning Wisler allowed more than one baserunner.
Right-hander Sugar Ray Marimon was optioned to Gwinnett to clear a spot for Wisler.
