Cobb shines as O's edge Mets, snap 7-game skid

10 June 2018

The Mets are in the midst of one of the worst offensive stretches in club history, a six-game homestand in which they've scored a total of seven runs over 59 innings - including just two in the last 42.

For the season, Bruce is batting.224 with a.297 on-base percentage and just three home runs.

The Baltimore Orioles are paying a visit to Flushing to take on the Mets at Citi Field. Instead of a seven-game losing streak, they now have a two-game winning streak.

A major league-worst 19-41, the Orioles swept the two-game interleague series for their first consecutive wins since May 24-25.

"I think we need to sit down and talk about that tonight, if there's another step before that", Callaway said. We played two crisp ballgames.

Vargas took the hard-luck loss after allowing the two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings. He lasted only six batters as Rendon doubled home two runs and scored on Taylor's double.

The Mets threatened just once against Bundy, who gave up a two-out double to Kevin Plawecki in the seventh before he intentionally walked Adrian Gonzalez and walked pinch hitter Jose Bautista. "Just go out there and pitch the way you're capable of". NY has dropped seven straight at Citi Field.

"That's a good ballclub over there - great pitching", Machado said.

The Orioles' big bats were quiet during the series.

While the Mets run the risk of giving up too much for what could be nothing more than a rental, the possibility of pairing Machado with a healthy Yoenis Cespedes could thrust NY back into contention in the National League East. "We know he can he can get through an at-bat OK".

After falling behind in the count 0-1, Machado lifted the next pitch to deep center to drive in Baltimore's run and send the Mets to their sixth straight loss.

Brad Brach picked up saves in both games. He now has 10, and the right-hander could soon reunite with the rehabbing Zach Britton and Darren O'Day to make the Orioles' bullpen even better. Zack Wheeler has not pitched well at home as he has gone 0-4 with a 6.43 ERA here at Citi Field for the year and is now 8-19 with a 5.12 ERA in his career in this park.

"Today got me knowing I was on the right path", Cobb said.

Matt Harvey is already gone, Jacob deGrom's Cy Young-worthy start to the 2018 season is being wasted and the Mets offense has gone missing, averaging 1.4 runs per game in their last four and 3.98 runs per game on the season.

NY was unable to gain any positive vibes from its last home series over the weekend, dropping four in a row to Chicago. Pitching has been throwing well. The bullpen has been coming in, stopping it and giving us the opportunity to come out and do things for us.
