Stock Mets debut white uni

The Mets were shut out for the eighth time on the season in a 5-0 loss on Wednesday night.

Here are the takeaways…

1. After making his first career start in June against the Mets, Robert Stock on Wednesday night made his second career start as a member of the Mets. He finished with a decent line (four innings pitched, four hits and two earned runs), but his two-run home run allowed to Manny Pina spoiled his debut.

2. After hitting their winning number in Game 1 — the Mets are now 36-6 when scoring four runs — the bats went ice cold in Game 2. They managed only three hits, all singles.

3. All five Brewers runs came on home runs. Willy Adames (solo) and Luis Urias (two-run) had the others.

4. Brewers reliever Brad Boxberger started the sixth inning by walking Brandon Nimmo, Jeff McNeil and Jonathan Villar. Next, Francisco Lindor struck out, Smith did the same, and Pete Alonso completed the strikeout trifecta. 36 pitches and a three WHIP for Boxberger, but no runs allowed.

5. Dominic Smith made a terrific catch in the third inning reaching over the wall in left field foul territory.

6. Drew Smith pitched two innings in relief of Stock, letting up a solo home run as his only hit. His ERA is 2.70 in 23.1 innings. Miguel Castro’s struggles continued in the seventh. He let up the two-run homer to Urias and retired only one batter. His ERA is up to 4.01.


What’s next?

The Mets start a four-game series with the Pirates on Thursday at Citi Field at 7:10 p.m. on SNY.

JT Brubaker will take the mound for Pittsburgh, while Taijuan Walker will get the nod for the Mets.
