How long has it been since the Mets won a road series?

The Mets haven't won a road series in nine attempts this season and haven't won back-to-back games on the road since July 25-26 of last season in Houston.

The 55-game drought is the Mets' longest since a 64-game stretch during the 1963-64 seasons.

Interestingly, the Padres, which just took two of three from the Mets, come to Citi Field next week for a three-game series beginning on Tuesday. The Mets are 19-9 at home.

The Mets hit the road again on June 11 for a three-game series in Baltimore against the Orioles. The Orioles are the worst team in baseball with a 15-38 record (.283).
