Astros beat Mets and Trevor Williams badly

The Mets’ patched-up rotation has kept them competitive for the most part, but they will be put to the test when they face top-tier competition.

As per sources, On Tuesday night, the Mets lost 8-2 to the Astros in Texas, as Trevor Williams was beaten early and Chasen Shreve went downhill behind him. Following Max Scherzer’s rehab start for Double-A Binghamton, which could be his penultimate step before rejoining the Mets rotation, he was thoroughly pummelling on Friday.

A day off for the bullpen is a good thing when “everyone is healthy and we’re all working together,” Williams said after allowing two homers to score three runs in four innings of work against the Cardinals. With the loss, the Mets (45-25) retained their 5-1/2-game lead in the NL East over the Braves.

A two-run homer by Yordan Alvarez came after Williams had retired Michael Brantley but had also walked Alex Bregman. “You tip your cap to him, as well as the character of this squad,” Williams said of the pitcher. Williams has served the organization in a variety of roles, from the bullpen to the starting rotation.

‘Wow, that’s impressive.’ And he’s always promised that if we needed it, he’d pitch another inning. The left-hander Shreve walked three batters and allowed three singles in the inning, his second bad effort in his previous three. Since May 14, Shreve has posted an 8.40 ERA in 13 appearances, despite a promising start to the season.

In the beginning, Shreve said, “I got singled out to death, giving up runs.” Despite the fact that they are a solid hitters, “I didn’t have it today.” At 107.8 mph, Pete Alonso’s 20th home run of the season brought the Mets within 7-1 in the sixth inning against Jose Urquidy.

Eduardo Escobar hit a home run in the seventh inning to give the Mets their second run, after he had struck out with the bases loaded in his previous at-bat.
