They hit deGrom uncharacteristically hard in the second to take a 3-0 lead.
Andrew Knapp knocked an RBI double to right, Haseley hit a sacrifice fly and Andrew McCutchen’s fielder’s choice capped the scoring against deGrom.
Like deGrom, Wheeler was bothered by an injury — though one more gross than severe.
