The Mets had their chances to bury the Rangers, but the offense never clicked in a sleepy 7-3 loss at Citi Field.
Mets hitters went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base, leading to the team’s sixth loss in its last nine games. Despite Eduardo Escobar homering for the second time in as many days and Starling Marte going 2-for-4 with a two-run dinger of his own, the game was over before the Mets lineup could string a rally together or find any consistency.
Trevor Williams was not as sharp against the Rangers as he has been of late for the Mets. One day after Max Scherzer credited Williams as being one of the pitchers who stepped up in his absence, Williams threw batting practice to the bottom half of the Texas lineup.
Right fielder Kole Calhoun took Williams deep twice, and catcher Jonah Heim tacked on a solo shot to join the home run party. The Mets’ early lead, thanks to Marte’s first-inning two-run homer, was quickly erased and the Rangers kept their lead from the second inning.
Williams entered Saturday having given up six home runs in 42 innings this season, but he’s coughed up five home runs in his last two starts. Williams was forced to slide back into the rotation on Saturday after Chris Bassitt went on the COVID IL. David Peterson, Saturday’s original starter, was moved up to Friday, leaving the weekend slot open for Williams.
The Mets will hope to win the rubber match on Sunday behind Carlos Carrasco, who has struggled lately amid lower back pain and disappointing results. Carrasco has permitted 19 earned runs in his last 17.2 innings pitched. He will look to bounce back in the series finale against a Rangers offense that has a .690 OPS, 22nd in MLB, this year.

While fans hoped the media maven would return and grace the stage soon, it may not be in the cards for the near future as she continues to face health troubles.
However, on August 9, 2022, Wendy shared the news that she was launching a new podcast, The Wendy Experience.
Despite her upbeat attitude as she revealed details of her new venture, fans were left concerned as she "did not seem herself".

But her manager exclusively told The Sun although she "isn't in perfect condition", he was confident she was ready for her next career step.

Her close circle is also struggling to control her comments, as she bizarrely claimed she was married on August 2nd.
It came shortly after she appeared to be passed out next to a champagne glass at New York City's Louis Vuitton store.

Sources close to her have suggested she is "not living in reality" and often "forgets who she is speaking to" in wake of her troubles.Was The Wendy Williams Show canceled?
