Mets News and Notes: Mets Streak, Duda, Patterson, Wheeler, Bay, Baxter, Valdespin, 2013 All-Star Logo, Santana, Ramirez, Parnell


Mets News and Notes:

The Mets, who had an 0-6 homestand before embarking on a three-city trip, now have lost eight straight at Citi Field. That is the team's longest home losing streak since also dropping eight straight at Shea Stadium in September 2007.

Lucas Duda appears to be heating up with Buffalo. After going 3-for-25 in his first six games following a demotion, Duda has a five-game hitting streak during which he is hitting .471 (8-for-17) with two homers. Duda has started the past two games in left field, after manning first base for two games.

Newly acquired right-hander Scott Patterson allowed two runs on three hits in an inning in his Buffalo debut Monday, although he had not thrown off a mound for more than a week. Patterson, 33, had asked for his release from the Mariners organization. He had received a recruiting call during the offseason from Terry Collins, but opted to sign with Seattle over Baltimore and the Mets. Patterson had a 2.89 ERA and four saves in 26 relief appearances at Triple-A Tacoma, but was not being considered for a major league promotion with Seattle.

Zack Wheeler’s second Triple-A start is scheduled for Saturday against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Yankees) in Buffalo.
