The New York Mets (30-29) offense was quiet again in a tight 2-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays (32-27) on Saturday evening at Citi Field.
With the game tied at one in the top of the ninth, Buck Showalter kept David Robertson in to face Vladimir Gurrero Jr., and it did not go as planned as he smoked a go-ahead RBI double. The Mets had an opportunity in the bottom of the frame, but Erik Swanson closed it out.
New York plated its only run on Daniel Vogelbach’s RBI double in the sixth inning and went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position while leaving nine on base.
Tylor Megill surrendered one run over 5 1/3 innings of work. Brooks Raley and Adam Ottavino had scoreless outings in relief.
The Mets will try to avoid the three-game sweep on Sunday at 1:10 p.m.
