D.J. Carrasco, stopper?
Nobody would have thought it, but that’s the way it will be for the Mets tonight in Atlanta. The Mets are losers of five straight games, including a doubleheader loss yesterday against Colorado.
“Depressing,’’ manager Terry Collins said of the Mets’ 1-6 homestand. “We’re better than this and we’ll play better than this. I still believe we’re going to straighten this out.’’
Carrasco will get the ball because Chris Young, suffering from tendinitis, was pushed back until Sunday.
