After snapping the longest losing streak of his career in his previous start Connor Williams Color Rush Jersey , Marcus Stroman went straight back to struggling.

Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer, Brandon Nimmo reached base three times and the New York Mets beat Marcus Stroman and the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Wednesday night.

Stroman (1-6) lost six straight decisions before beating Detroit last Friday but couldnt build on that performance. He allowed six runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings, raising his ERA from 6.02 to 6.50.

I just didnt have a feel for anything from pitch one, Stroman said.

Frazier gave the Mets the lead with a drive to center field off the right-hander in a five-run fifth.

Now in his fifth season, Stroman was expected to be a steadying presence in Torontos rotation. Instead, he has dealt with a sore shoulder that sidelined him for more than a month, and been hit hard when healthy enough to pitch.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway, a former pitcher and pitching coach Vita Vea Buccaneers Jersey , said location is at the root of Stromans rough stretch.

Everything is just up a little bit from what Ive seen in the past, Callaway said. I think, from a pitching coachs perspective, for him to have his good sinker and his good slider, hes got to make sure he gets the ball down. Thats kind of how he lived in the past and what his success was all about, getting guys to chase below the zone.

Former teammate Jose Bautista flied out in his first two at-bats against Stroman but delivered an RBI single in the fifth.

His stuff was moving, he just wasnt locating as well as Ive seen him do in the past from the outfield, Bautista said.

Stroman http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/ … ite-jersey , from Long Island, had never faced the Mets before.

Seth Lugo (3-3) pitched three innings of relief for the win. Jeurys Familia closed for his 16th save in 20 opportunities.

Wilmer Flores had two hits and Kevin Plawecki scored twice for the Mets, who had lost 11 of 13.

Torontos Kendrys Morales hit a solo home run in the second but the Mets answered on Nimmos RBI single in the third. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. restored Torontos lead with a two-out RBI single in the fourth before Stroman unraveled in the fifth.

Flores led off with a single and scored on Fraziers 10th home run. Bautista and Asdrubal Cabrera chased Stroman with consecutive RBI singles, and Michael Conforto capped the outburst with a run-scoring single off reliever Luis Santos.

Making his second major league career start, New York right-hander Corey Oswalt allowed two runs and five hits in four innings.

Thats a good leap forward for him, Callaway said. He looked a lot better.
