Carlos Carrasco grey uniform delivering a pitch

The Mets offense had another rough night in Friday’s 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, but if there was a silver lining in the defeat, it was Carlos Carrasco’s performance on the mound.

The veteran right-hander allowed three runs in his first three innings of work, but he settled in and gave the Mets a season-high five innings. As he continues to ramp up after missing most of the season due to a torn hamstring, Carrasco threw a season-high 78 pitches on Friday.

“[I felt] really good tonight. Before this start, I worked so hard on everything, getting to control my mechanics a little bit,” Carrasco said after the game. “I got three runs, but at the same time, I think everything feels good. My last start, it was kind of a little bit rough. This time I felt a little bit better.”

Friday’s game was also a nice bounce-back performance for Carrasco, as he allowed six earned runs in just two innings against LA his last time out.

And while the veteran didn’t get much in terms of run support, he liked the way his teammates battled behind him against some tough Dodgers pitching.

“I trust my team, I trust my guys, no matter what’s the situation,” Carrasco said. “We’re going to have some ups and down, but I always trust in my guys.”

The Mets will look to turn things around on Saturday afternoon, when they face the Dodgers at 4:05 p.m. with Rich Hill on the mound against Max Scherzer.
