It turned out to be a very bad weekend for the Mets.
Right-hander Marcus Stroman was hurt by the home run Sunday afternoon as New York fell to the Rays, 7-1, at Tropicana Field, completing Tampa Bay’s three-game sweep.
The Mets dropped to 18-16.
The game started on the wrong foot when the Mets lost right fielder Michael Conforto and designated hitter Jeff McNeil to hamstring injuries while running the bases.
It got worse because Stroman had one of his worst outings of the year. He allowed five runs in six innings, with the runs coming via three home runs by the Rays.
