Jacob deGrom pitched four sharp innings in his final spring tuneup, David Wright had a perfect night at the plate and the New York Mets shut down the Texas Rangers for a 5-0 victory Friday.

Last season's NL Rookie of the Year, deGrom was joined by Rafael Montero, Jeurys Familia, Jenrry Mejia and Jerry Blevins in completing a three-hitter.

Wright went 3 for 3 with a walk, and Juan Lagares had three hits.

Mets pitchers extended their scoreless streak to 20 1-3 innings and have given up only nine runs over the past seven games.

The Rangers have lost eight in a row.

Wright doubled home Lagares in the first inning against starter Logan Verrett, a former Mets minor leaguer who was making his Rangers debut after being acquired Thursday on a waiver claim from Baltimore.
