Juan Lagares leads Mets to 12-2 rout of Blue Jays

Juan Lagares leads Mets to 12-2 rout of Blue Jays

Syndergaard didn't have his best command in this one, as he gave up four walks to go along with six hits.

Zack Wheeler goes for the Mets and he'll be looking to go above.500 as he now sits at 2-2 on the year.

Happ tossed seven innings and allowed just two hits while striking out 10 on another wet day in Queens, N.Y., that twice forced the Citi Field grounds crew into action mid-frame. Marcus Stroman was supposed to be the teams ace but put up an 0-5 record with a 7.71 ERA before he was sent to the DL. His outing marked only the sixth time a Jays starter has gone seven innings this season.

The 35-year-old veteran, who spent almost six years playing in the National League and had a.096 average with one home run, two doubles and six RBIs heading into Wednesday, was one of six Blue Jays with more than one hit on the day.

Instead, Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ had a blast doing all three. Happ hadn't allowed more than four earned in any other 2018 start.

"He was outstanding on a tough day to play", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.

Another reminder that Toronto will be without the designated hitter, usually Kendrys Morales, for this interleague matchup in the NL park.

Mac Miller has been arrested for allegedly crashing his auto while driving drunk and leaving the scene. Mac's bail has been set at $15,000, and at the time of writing, he was still in jail.

Syndergaard also got a much needed win, but otherwise had a mixed performance on the night.

Mets: New York gets Thursday off before beginning a stretch of 18 games in 17 days.

After retiring the first eight batters he faced, Lugo allowed a two out single to Blue Jays reliever Deck McGuire in the eighth. NY is just 4-10 in Wheeler's past 14 at home overall.

The Mets entered Monday tied for 11th in the National League with 37 homers, including just 11 since May 1. The left-handed Happ is 4-3 with a 4.80 ERA and 56 strikeouts. Yoenis Cespedes has seen him the most and is 5-for-22 with two doubles, a homer and five RBIs. Asdrubal Cabrera is 2-for-9 with a double. NY has covered the spread just once in its last seven games and the total has gone under in six of those seven. Happ will face a Mets offence that has been in a funk for weeks.

The Blue Jays added three runs apiece in the sixth, via a Donaldson sacrifice fly and RBI singles by Hernandez and Kevin Pillar, and the ninth, when Richard Urena hit a three-run homer.

But it's worth remembering that for all of Syndergaard's awe-inspiring power, he's still logged only 415.2 innings, and for all the hype around him, Mets pitching coach Dave Eiland told the New York Post this week that, "he is yet to do a whole lot at the major league level".
