It was an ugly Monday afternoon for the New York Mets (3-2) as they got blanked by the Milwaukee Brewers (3-1), 10-0, at American Family Field.
Carlos Carrasco made his season debut on the mound for the Mets and struggled. The right-hander allowed five runs on four hits over four innings, and his fastball velocity was noticeably down.
Tommy Hunter replaced Carrasco on the mound in the fifth inning after he failed to record an out, and the veteran served up a grand slam, and the Brewers rolled from there.
The offense could not get anything going as they were held to just three hits, with two of the three coming off the bat of Luis Guillorme, who also pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
The Mets will try to quickly turn the page on Tuesday as the teams continue the three-game series. Max Scherzer will make his second start of the season. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:40 p.m.
