In this last series against the Rockies, Todd Frazier went 2-for-11, Jay Bruce went 3-for-12 and Cespedes went 2-9, though exiting early from game 3 with a quad injury.

Outside of a seven-run performance on Friday night against the Colorado Rockies, the Mets offense over the past week has been virtually non-existent.

Mickey Callaway made a decision to give Conforto a "mental day" after starting the first game of the series and leaving with a golden sombrero. Since returning from a shoulder injury at the beginning of the season, Conforto is batting just.189, and his only home run came in the first game he played back on April 5.

Kyle Freeland is starting to find his groove.

7-3 in their last 10 games against a left-handed starter.

Bryan Shaw, Jake McGee and Adam Ottavino combined to allow one hit over the final two innings, with Ottavino earning his first save after stranding two runners in the ninth. Syndergaard battled command issues, walking four batters, yet still tossed six innings and left the game with the score tied at 2-2.

Callaway thought that adding Brandon Nimmo back to the top of the order would make an instant difference, but they might have to give him some more time to see the payoff as the outfielder has gone 1-7 since re-entering the lineup to lower his season average to.268.

After a 11-1 start, the Mets have now lost 14 of 20 and can't afford to have slugger Yoenis Cespedes out for an extended time.

I am taking the Mets in this matchup. Then, Noel Cuevas - who's mom was in town to root him on, after she was there in Miami, too - came through with a hit into right field, and a passed ball against Carlos Gonzalez moved Iannetta and Cuevas up to second and third.

That being said, Nimmo did also draw two walks in that span, which once again shows off his terrific on-base skills (.455 OBP), which is what the team needs right now.

Freeland allowed four hits and one walk while striking out eight in authoring the Rockies' eighth straight quality start, the team's longest streak since 2009.

The Reds are 8-25 this season and have a staff ERA of 5.18, the highest in the Major Leagues, making them easy prey for the once powerful Met offense to feast on.
