Zack Wheeler got lit up for six runs on seven hits over four innings Wednesday in the Mets’ loss to Toronto.
Advice: Wheeler walked three and struck out seven while throwing 53 of his 81 pitches for strikes. As you can see from his stat line, the right-hander didn’t have his best stuff on Wednesday. Wheeler served up two homers in the loss including a two-run jack by Teoscar Hernandez in the fourth inning. The sloppy conditions might be to blame for Wheeler’s struggles, though the wet weather at Citi Field didn’t seem to bother Toronto starter, J.A. Happ, who notched 10 punch-outs over seven shutout innings for his fifth victory. Wheeler will take an ugly 5.92 ERA into his next outing Monday against the Marlins.
