Met swept by Guardians after blowing three-run lead

It’s been a tough three weeks for the New York Mets (21-28), and it got even worse on Wednesday afternoon at Progressive Field as they blew a three-run lead and were swept by the Cleveland Guardians (33-17) with a 6-3 loss.

New York is 2-8 over their last eight games and 6-14 in their past 20.

Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Harrison Bader crushed solo home runs in the first four innings, but it was all Cleveland after that. They tied the game in the sixth and grabbed the lead in the seventh before tacking on two more in the eighth.

Jose Quintana was cruising through five shutout innings until he allowed a game-tying three-run home run to Andrés Giménez. The bullpen wasn’t any better as Reed Garrett surrendered the go-ahead run, and Adam Ottavino gave up two more.

Box Score

The Mets will get the day off Thursday before they begin a 10-game homestand, starting with three against the San Francisco Giants on Friday at 7:10 p.m.
