The Mets have now dropped all 7 games on this 8 game road swing so far. They also drop below .500 at 36-37 and are 10-26 on the road.  The Nats won Wednesday night so the Mets drop to 3 ½ games behind in 2nd place in the NL east still ½ game ahead of the 3rd place Braves.  Thursday afternoon Jacob deGrom (7-5 2.34) coming off a great start and a hard luck loss in Atlanta looks to end this losing skid. Taylor Jungmann (2-1 3.50) goes for the Brewers.
