Game Recap June 22: Pill Can’t Alleviate Mets’ Woes

The Mets have had a rash of underperformance in their starting rotation lately. And last night, they turned to Tyler Pill against the Dodgers in hopes he could turn things around for them.

Poor starting pitching, contact-based offense, and timely hitting: This wasn’t the team profile the Mets were supposed to have going into this season. That wasn’t exactly their blueprint for success.
