If you blinked, you might have missed this one.
The Mets, despite getting only five hits all game, managed to sweep the Rockies, defeating the latter 2-0 in tonight's contest. Eric Young Jr., facing his former team, was responsible for three of those hits, and drove in the only run the Mets needed on a triple in the second inning. Other than that, Rockies starter Tyler Matzek had very little trouble against a Mets lineup without Lucas Duda or David Wright.
In what may have been his final start of the season, Rafael Montero pitched fairly well. He held the Rockies hitless through four innings, and didn't have any serious issues until the sixth, when he exited the game with one out and runners at first and third. While it was hardly effortless, as he walked four and threw 106 pitches in less than six innings of work, he struck out seven, and, overall, his performance tonight represented a nice note for the Mets prospect to go out on as a starter.
Dario Alvarez, Carlos Torres, Jeurys Familia, and Jenrry Meija all pitched in relief of Montero, with Meija getting the save after a rough outing last night.
