The struggles of New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor continued apace on Monday night as he went 0 for 4 with a pair of strikeouts and six runners left on in a 6-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals (box score).

While Lindor did manage a walk in the ninth off St. Louis closer Alex Reyes, he was hitless for a fifth straight game. He’s now batting .163/.284/.209 with only home run and one double. In matters related, Lindor is now 0 for his last 21. That’s the second longest hitless streak of his career, in terms of both games and at-bats. Not long after the game went final, the Mets announced the firing of hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Tom Slater. The safe assumption is that the struggles of Lindor played at least a small role in that decision.
