Mets lose seventh straight to fall under .500

By Ryan Punzalan

Despite a manager-organized team meeting, the New York Mets fell below .500 for the first time since April 11 after losing to the Milwaukee Brewers, 4-1.

Game Recap:

After a quiet top of the first, the Brewers jumped ahead of the Mets thanks to two runs off four straight hits to begin the bottom half of the frame.

With a 2-0 lead, the Brewers threatened to score more with two runners in scoring position and no outs, but Bartolo Colon escaped by striking out Carlos Gomez and getting the following two hitters to fly out.

The score remained 2-0 until Curtis Granderson knocked a solo home run in the fourth inning, his 11th of the season.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Brewers tacked on another run that was brought on to the Mets after a failed coverage of first base by Colon.

Brewers added an additional run in the bottom of the sixth off a home run from Scooter Gennett, giving the Brewers a 4-1 lead.


  • Curtis Granderson hit his 11th home run of the season, his third in the last four games.
  • Johnny Monnell went 1-for-3 in his first start since being recalled.
  • The rest of the Mets went hitless for the evening.
  • Bartolo Colon went six innings and allowed four runs off ten hits. His season ERA is now 4.89.


Uh, yikes.

Injuries have destroyed the team’s major league roster and the players that are out on the field now have no business starting day-to-day.

The Mets have turned from a pleasant story in April and May to an absolute disaster in June.

All in all, this team is bad.

Really bad.
