This stretch against West Coast teams has been anything but a joke. The Mets are 1-6 to start the trip.

Per usual, the Mets bats failed Thursday night.

Six hits and one single run led to the Amazins coming up short by a score of 4-1 to begin this four-game series against the Dodgers. New York has now lost six of its last seven games and will attempt to stop the bleeding Friday night in Los Angeles.

Carlos Carrasco takes the mound.
