Mets’ winning streak ends with lopsided loss in LA

The Mets’ six-game winning streak came to a decisive end this afternoon in LA, as the Dodgers shellacked the Amazins 10-0 to avoid the sweep.

It was a crisp first couple of innings for both Adrian Houser and Tyler Glasnow, but the warning signs were there early for Houser. A ground ball pitcher who traditionally does not walk many batters was getting all of his outs via fly balls and walking too many batters. Eventually it caught up to him in a big way.

In the bottom of the third, Houser issued a leadoff walk to the number nine hitter Gavin Lux (it was not the last time this would happen in the game) and Shohei Ohtani clubbed a monster two-run bomb on an off-speed pitch that caught way too much plate to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead.
