The New York Mets look to rally behind Marcus Stroman in St. Louis.

How about the last couple days for the Mets? They fired their hitting coaches on Monday night and then Jacob deGrom was scratched on Tuesday because of a lat issue. Could things be worse? (We probably shouldn’t ask that…)

Marcus Stroman will take the hill for the Mets on Wednesday evening, looking to continue his strong start to the 2021 season. His sub-2.00 ERA has been impressive. Now if the offense would help him in the win category (sound familiar?).

Game Two

In Game 1 of the Wednesday doubleheader against the Cardinals, the Mets offense endured its usual struggles, recording just two hits in a 4-1 loss.

The issues from the batter’s box overshadowed a decent outing from Marcus Stroman, who allowed seven hits and two earned runs while walking one batter and striking out six through five innings.

James McCann had the lone RBI for New York.

After losing the first two matchups of this four-game series, the Mets will send reliever Miguel Castro to the mound to start the second matchup of the day.
