The Mets will try to avoid a late-season sweep when they face the Red Sox Wednesday night on the road.

Pete Alonso says “It’s unlikely” the Mets end up clinching a playoff spot.

He’s not wrong…whatsoever.

The Mets are 26-38 after the All-Star Break and have lost six of their last seven games.

They’re 7.0 games back of the National League East-leading Braves and 8.5 games back in the NL Wild Card race with 11 to play.

The season is likely a lost cause, but the Amazins will still attempt to notch a late-season victory over the Red Sox Wednesday night.

Taijuan Walker takes the mound for New York.
