June

After a strong start to the year, the Mets struggled to start the month of June. They went 1-3 over an important 4-game series against the Washington Nationals, and went on to go on a 2-7 skid over 9 games later on in the month.

This skid unfortunately knocked the Mets down to second in the division behind the Nationals. They were briefly overtaken by the third-place Phillies.

Michael Conforto didn’t hit nearly as strongly as he did to start the year and only hit 4 home runs on the month. The Mets also suffered a few injuries to key players, primarily Robinson Cano, who missed two weeks from a sprained ankle and set up man Seth Lugo, who will miss more than a month from an arm injury

Despite this rough patch, the Mets went on to win 6 games straight following the skid and managed to go .500 over the month of June, going 13-13/50-35 overall on the year.

Reigning Rookie of the Year Pete Alonso took over the team home runs lead, recording 21 by the end of June ahead of Conforto’s 19, and Rick Porcello lowered his ERA from 4.27 at the start of the month to .3.45 by its end.
