Watered-down version of Mets swamped by Blue Jays

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard delivers against the Blue

I won't focus on the continuing struggles offensively.

The Mets exploded for five runs in the bottom of the fourth. With respect to those three, expecting much from the bats was a bit of a stretch, so I'll let that rotting carcass rest for a day. Part of that has been schedule, part of it has been weather, part of it has been inconsistent play.

Wheeler fell apart after the delay. The Mets have lost 18 of 27 since an 11-1 start. That's a month's worth of horrific play which includes, nearly unfathomably, zero back-to-back wins in that span.

Juan Lagares had four hits and three RBIs to help NY improve to 12-0 at home against Toronto - the longest such streak in interleague history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Toronto has recorded 16.5 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 outings and 18.6 over its last five. SportsNet New York will televise this interleague matchup.

"Yeah, it was just a fun game", Happ told reporters in NY.

Cabrera seemed to take a step back when hitting lefties at home previous year, slashing.268/.288/.286 across 59 such plate appearances (his total season line was.280/.351/.434).

Blue Jays: Host Oakland on Thursday, with RHP Aaron Sanchez (2-3, 4.08 ERA) opposing A's RHP Andrew Triggs (3-1, 5.31). He's 15-8 with a 3.13 ERA in 40 road starts.

Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin moved to shortstop in the eighth inning, his first major league appearance at the position. He finished 1-for-3.

NY placed outfielder Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hip flexor, retroactive to Monday. He struck out three times.

Curtis Granderson received a warm hand in his first game at Citi Field since the Mets traded him to the NL champion Los Angeles Dodgers last August. He looked like one of the most promising young pitchers in baseball in 2014 when he was 11-11 with a 3.54 ERA and 187 strikeouts in 185.1 innings over 32 starts. He still has great stuff, however, and has struck out 56 batters this season over 43 innings and he's only walked 13 batters.

The Mets will turn to righty Zack Wheeler (2-2, 5.03 ERA) to the mound.

Happ lasted just 3.1 innings in his last start against Seattle on May 10, giving up seven runs.

The 35-year-old veteran, who spent almost six years playing in the National League and had a.096 average with one home run, two doubles and six RBIs heading into Wednesday, was one of six Blue Jays with more than one hit on the day. He is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in four career appearances (three starts) against NY.
