Noah Syndergaard takes the ball for the Mets as they try and snap a four-game losing streak on Tuesday against the Padres at Petco Park 10:10 p.m. on SNY.
The Mets' four-game skid is the first time they have lost four in a row since July 31-Aug. 3 last season. ... The Mets' offense continues to struggle, scoring just three or fewer runs in each of their last six games, the longest streak since the club scored three or fewer runs in 11 consecutive games last June. ... Brandon Nimmo is looking to bust out of an 0-for-26 slump in the seventh spot while Todd Frazier is 2-for-his-last-26 and batting eighth. ...Robinson Cano is one hit shy of career No. 2,500, which would make him the sixth player from the Dominican Republic to reach that mark.
