Mets fall as bats, defense can’t pick up Matz

The Mets got an excellent pitching performance from lefty Steven Matz on Sunday, but couldn’t back it up with any semblance of offense as a pair of mental mistakes cost New York in a 2-0 loss to the Cubs at Citi Field.

Two days after manager Mickey Callaway said he called a team meeting because “we’re not playing the game the right way,” it’s possible the message has yet to sink in.

“It’s frustrating. You’re giving them the game instead of them winning the game from you,” Callaway said. “That’s always hard to accept. If you do things the right way and get beat, you don’t feel great because you lost, but you accept it and move on.”
