Dodgers star Mookie Betts had some kind words for Mets hurler Jacob deGrom after the teams faced off at Citi Field on Wednesday night. 

"I don't even know how to answer," Betts said in the locker room after the game about what it's like to face deGrom. "He's pretty much the best, maybe the best to ever pitch. He's a tough task."

Betts' comment came after his team took a 2-1 loss. Although the Dodgers outfielder was able to register a home run against DeGrom, he admitted that it was very challenging. 

DeGrom has been dealing with a stress reaction injury in his right shoulder this year, which has caused him to miss a lot of playing time. Wednesday was his first start in nearly a week. He threw 93 pitchers through a season-high seven innings. DeGrom surrendered one run on three hits and a walk, while striking out nine batters. By the end of the night, deGrom's ERA had dropped from 2.15 to 1.98 this season.
