Juan Lagares leads Mets to 12-2 rout of Blue Jays

Zack Wheeler stinker dooms Mets on dreary day at CitiĀ Field

Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin has played over 1,500 games in his 13-year Major League Baseball career, but on Tuesday night he did something that he'd never done before in Toronto's 12-2 loss to the New York Mets.

Mets reliever Buddy Baumann batted in the eighth inning for the 17th plate appearance for New York's bullpen this season. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET. Toronto has struggled of late, losing seven of 10 and three of their last four, including 5-2 to Boston on Saturday and then 5-3 to the Red Sox on Sunday.

The Mets are 20-18 SU and 16-21 ATS. NY has covered the spread just once in its last seven games and the total has gone under in six of those seven.

"He was outstanding on a tough day to play", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.

Lagares went 4-for-5 with three RBI's, and Rosario went 3-for-4 with two RBI's.

NY games have an over/under record of 17-19-1 so far in 2018. Toronto recorded 15 hits in total.

Missing injured sluggers Yoenis Cespedes and Todd Frazier, the Mets finally broke through anyway against Jaime Garcia and the skidding Blue Jays after an 86-minute rain delay at the start. The left-handed Happ is 4-3 with a 4.80 ERA and 56 strikeouts. Happ will face a Mets offence that has been in a funk for weeks.

The Mets start 27-year-old right-hander Zack Wheeler on Wednesday. He was lifted for Robert Gsellman after allowing the first five Toronto batters to reach safely in the fifth.

"Yeah, it was just a fun game", Happ told reporters in NY.

Osuna had recorded nine saves in 10 chances before going on leave, posting a 2.93 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He finished 1-for-3. AJ Ramos (two-thirds of an inning) and Buddy Baumann (two innings) each gave up three runs. Clippard is actually tied for the team lead with four wins and 1.23 ERA. Cabrera is hitting.327/.373/.551 with six home runs, 24 RBIs and 23 runs scored, while Cespedes has produced a line of.255/.316/.474 with eight homers, 28 RBIs and 18 runs. Last season the Jays never made it to the.500 level.

The 35-year-old veteran, who spent almost six years playing in the National League and had a.096 average with one home run, two doubles and six RBIs heading into Wednesday, was one of six Blue Jays with more than one hit on the day. Kevin Pillar and Yangervis Solarte have carried the load for the offense. Toronto has dropped three in a row and eight of 11. On the other hand, the Mets have lost 0.1 units and are 5-4 ATS when facing a left-handed starting pitcher.
