The Mets-Reading Eagle, who suffered an explosive defeat behind Carlos Carrasco and was once again embarrassed by the Astros

The relentless Astros continued their tour of New York City. They struck Amazine on Tuesday night with a flush after splitting a four-game series at Bronx over the weekend.

Mets was bombarded 9-1 by the Astros in front of 36,673 people in Citi Field. President Barack Obama was still roaming the White House on September 28, 2014, when Mets last defeated the Astros.

Carlos Carrasco (8-7, 4.85 ERA) got out of his back pain and threw something still wrong on his 4.1 inning outing with Houston. But with his last few starts, something is wrong with Carasco. The veteran right-handed allowed 25 earned runs in the final pitched 35.1 innings, and three of his worst starts in that span again opposed the Angels, Astros and Astros.

Kyle Tucker silenced the violent Citi Field spectators as soon as it was on the 13th pitch of Carasco’s night. Carasco allowed all the first four batters to reach the base before Tucker rips the fastball that fell on the plate’s meat. The Astros revealed all of Carasco’s mistakes in the ugly first inning, not the team that missed the mistake.

Carasco calmed down, but the pitch count was rising as fast as the June ERA. The 35-year-old allowed two more runs before being pulled for the fifth time (the second as a result of Chase’n Shreve’s failure to go out). Carasco’s 6.07 ERA on June 6 is a nasty trend for one of the main parts of the Mets’ rotation, especially while Max Scherzer and Jacob DeGrom are still on the injured list.

When Carasco left, the five-run deficit was easier to swallow than what occurred just a few seconds later. Shreve hit a two-run home run on the first batter out of the pen. The Astros slugger hit his fourth home run in three games against the Mets, and Alvarez’s 403-foot home run to the left fielder killed Citi Field when Tucker’s home run silenced the crowd.

However, Shreve has not closed the deal yet. After a few batters, Yuli Gurriel took the Mets southpaw deep and shot two runs in the fifth inning. Before the ball landed in the left field, Buck Showalter got out of the dugout and generously ended Shreve’s night. After starting the season with 1.54 ERA on the first 10 outings, Shreve won 10.67 ERA on the last 14 relief appearances.

The Astros aren’t the only ones looking forward to leaving the town.

Mets (47-28) wanted to bounce back to Houston on their lawn and defeat them after being swept at Minute Maid Park last week. Instead, Astros left-handed Framber Valdez shut out Mets to eight innings. But that doesn’t mean Mets didn’t have a chance.

The best opportunity in the lineup to deal with Houston’s ruthless control came four times with two, three and one runners. Then JD Davis attacked Valdes, Eduardo Escobar walked to load the walk, and Mark Canha grounded on the first pitch he saw to end the innings and threats.

Mets played 1 to 13 with the scoring runners against the Miami Marlins on Sunday and then 1 to 9 with RISP on Tuesday. The only glorious part of the Mets lineup was Starling Marte. Starling Marte won 3-4 in two doubles. And Wednesday’s Series Finale against Houston does not offer amnesty. On Wednesday’s hill, two-time Cy Young Award-winning Justin Verlander set a 9-3 record, starting the 2.22 ERA 14 times this season.
