Though the ace is working his way back and could return soon, the Mets rotation continues to find ways to get the job done without him.
Each time the Mets rotation is faced with a challenge, somebody steps up and picks up the slack.
Last night, it was Carlos Carrasco, who threw five scoreless innings against the San Diego Padres and helped the Mets avoid a sweep.
ESPN Stats & Info tweeted about a current stretch that Mets starters are on.
They have allowed two or fewer runs in their last 14 starts and have a 1.58 ERA since July 7.
Mets starting pitchers have allowed 2 or fewer ER in 14 straight games, the longest streak in franchise history.

Mets Rotation Remains Dominant
The Mets rotation is proving to be the rotation that we all thought it would be entering the 2022 season, even with deGrom on the shelf.
With Scherzer out, the rotation fell on some hard times, but with him back, things seem to be back in order for the Mets and their starters.
This is an impressive run they’re on right now.
Even the San Francisco Giants, whose starters have been great lately, haven’t come anywhere close to what the Mets starters have done since early July.
Their starters have posted a 2.49 ERA, which doesn’t seem great when you put those stats next to the stats of the Mets rotation.
New York remains in first place in the NL East division with a 59-37 record, which is second-best in the National League.
The rotation is red-hot, and things should get even better when deGrom makes his highly anticipated return.
