Dodgers beat the Mets 8-7 in the 11th. Mets are swept and losers of 6 straight. Turner wins it with a solo HR
The Mets are going south fast. It was all tied at 7-7 in the 10th inning, until ex Met Justin Turner hit a solo HR to give LA the lead 8-7 and eventually the win. Dodgers sweep the Mets who have now dropped 6 straight games.
The desperate Mets tried something different going with reliever Jeremy Blevins who made his first career start. He went 2 innings allowing 2 runs on 2 hits while fanning three batters.
Amed Rosario was suppose to get a 2-game rest. However, in the 11th he pinched hit an made out.
Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki had a big game; going 2 for 5 with a 3-run HR and a RBI double.
Being 13 games under .500 and 12.5 games back in the NL Eastern division and 10.5 games back in the wild card race, it obviously seems likely the 31-44 Mets will be sellers unless somehow things turn-around in a hurry win-wise. It certainly doesn't seem likely at this point.
Still no Cespedes who's played a mere 37 games this season which equates to missing 38 games due to injury. In 2017, the Mets $27.5 million per year man missed half the season. Jason Vargas is on the DL with a calf injury. He was scheduled to start today.
It's look bleak for the Mets. Soon Sandy Alderson will put out the For Sale signs. I sense a starting pitcher will be traded. Who will that be deGrom who would get the most in return or Noah Syndergaard. I sense it will be Syndergaard. We will see...
