The New York Mets' poor form continued with a narrow loss to the Cincinnati Reds in MLB on Wednesday.
New York lost to the Reds 1-0, spoiling seven shut-out innings from Jacob deGrom and falling to 15-15 this season.
The Mets started the year off very well, going 9-4 through their first 13 games, but they have since gone 6-11 and 2-5 in their past seven.
New York started last season 11-1, but once the team entered May, things had started to unravel and the team were .500 by the 28th.
Fortunately for the Mets, deGrom did look like his old self after he had not over his past three starts as he had allowed 14 earned runs over his past 13 innings.
He was encouraged by his outing on Wednesday despite his team's loss.
"Nobody wants to go out there and stink," he told reporters after the game, via MLB.com.
He continued: "I felt like I was pretty close to where I want to be."
Last season, the Mets scored five runs or less in 25 of deGrom's 32 starts. They scored two or less in 12 of those. This season, in deGrom's three quality starts, the Mets have scored a total of eight runs and six were scored in one game.
Nolan Arenado went three-for-five with two home runs and four RBIs in the Colorado Rockies' 11-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Javy Baez went three-for-five with two runs scored and two RBIs, but the most impressive thing he did was homer and double in the same inning when the Cubs scored six runs in the second. And those two hits came on two pitches which is even more astonishing. Chicago beat the Seattle Mariners 11-0.
Miami Marlins pitcher Caleb Smith has been flat-out awesome this year and was once again in a 4-2 win over the Cleveland Indians. He tossed seven innings of one-run ball in the win and now has thrown at least six innings and allowed one run or less in each of his past four starts.
Atlanta Braves starter Max Fried has also been really good since moving into the starting rotation. He allowed one run in seven innings during a 5-1 win over the San Diego Padres. He has allowed two earned runs or less in at least six innings pitched in six of his seven starts.
The Tampa Bay Rays' Blake Snell, on the other hand, has not followed up his Cy Young year well. He gave up seven earned runs in three innings of work in an 8-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals. He has a 4.31 ERA in 31.1 innings this season.
Jesse Winker added insult to injury for Mets fans as he not only made a great catch to end the Reds' 1-0 win, but he waved goodbye to the fans.
