Zack Wheeler was brilliant tossing his first big league complete game three hit shutout and striking out 8. David Wright provided all the run support Wheeler would need with a first ining home run, Daniel Murphy had two hits, and Chris Young had a double in the Mets win.

Wheeler, the No. 6 pick in the 2009 draft, struck out eight. He allowed three hits and one walk, and 70 of his 111 pitches were strikes.

He pitched to only one batter over the minimum and was helped by three double plays.

“Anytime somebody gets on, whether it be a walk or hit, you just try to make a pitch and get a double play. I was able to do that,” Wheeler said.
