The New York Mets just got swept by the worst team in baseball.

The Miami Marlins closed out the weekend set against their division rivals in style. Right-hander Sandy Alcantara threw a complete-game, two-hit shutout on only 89 pitches (AKA a Maddux), in a contest that took only 1:59 to finish.

It's the first time the Marlins have won three straight in 2019 and is the team's first series sweep since 2017, per Steve Gelbs of SNYtv.

With the loss, the Mets have been shut out in back-to-back games and haven't scored a run in 19 innings. They're now 20-25 after losing five straight, and though management is publicly backing manager Mickey Callaway for now, rumors have been circulating that the grasp on his job has become tenuous.

When asked if he thought the punchless weekend would cost him his job, Callaway said no, according to Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports.

The Mets are 5-11 in May, have been shut out four times in the month, and have scored five or more runs on just five occasions.

On the bright side, right-hander Noah Syndergaard was almost as sharp as his counterpart. Thor allowed two runs on five hits and a walk over seven strong innings while striking out three on 82 pitches.
