The Mets will look to avoid being swept in Milwaukee on Sunday with Jason Vargas taking the mound for the 2:10 p.m. first pitch.
It's been quite the up-and-down season for Brandon Nimmo. He's hitless in his last six games and is currently in the midst of an 0-for-22 skid since April 28, but is batting third Sunday. ... The Mets have scored three or fewer runs in their last four games and they've scored 26 runs over their last 10. The team is hitting .212 during that stretch. ... Pete Alonso hit his 10th homer Saturday tie up the game at 2 in the ninth. Eight of his homers have come in the seventh inning or later, which leads the Major Leagues. Alonso leads all rookies in home runs, RBI (27) and OPS (.994). ... Even against a right-handed pitcher, the Mets have Robinson Cano, Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil (all lefties) on the bench after Saturday night's 18-inning marathon loss.
