Mets' home run drought matches a feat from 2013
You would think that the New York Mets who just finished off playing four straight series against losing teams would have success and get them in the win column, well think again. After splitting their four-game series against the Washington Nationals, they have now gone over a month not winning a series and finished their 13-game stretch against losing teams a woeful 4-9.
But that was not even the worse part about the Mets' 13-game stretch. We all knew that starting pitching was already a concern, but their offense has not been playing that great either as of late which has resulted in this team's recent downfall. As a matter of fact, after losing against their rivals the Nats, they did something in that series they have not done in 10 years.
The Mets failed to hit a single home run in their four-game series
The Mets have many players on their team capable of hitting 20+ home runs with players like Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Francisco Lindor to name a few. But this past weekend and as of recently, they have not been able to do so. According to Sarah Lang, it was the first time since 2013 that the Mets did not hit a single home run in a four-game series. Just an embarrassing feat to accomplish and one that the Mets would like to never happen again.
The New York Mets have also not hit a home run since Pete Alonso did so on May 10 against the Reds in nearly a week. That's 61 innings which is such an unprecedented stat.
Now sitting at 20-22, they're heading back home to host the best team in baseball the Tampa Bay Rays. There needs to be serious changes for the Mets to make in particular on offense if they wish to get back on track. It can start with a home run or two.
