The Mets dropped the rubber game of their series at Coors Field to the Rockies this afternoon, 5-4 on a walk-off base on balls.
Rafael Montero started for the Mets, and went five and two-thirds innings, giving up four runs, including solo home runs to both Charlie Blackmon and Mark Reynolds. Montero struck out six and walked one, and generally looked far better than his prior start in San Diego.
The Mets trailed early, but kept coming back. They were aided by Yoenis Cespedes’s 11th home run of the season, and Amed Rosario’s second triple of his career. For the second straight day, the Mets’ bullpen was solid, with scoreless appearances from Josh Smoker, Erik Goeddel, and Jerry Blevins.
Hansel Robles got the final out of the eighth inning, and came back out for the ninth. A hit batsman, a sacrifice, an intentional walk, and two unintentional walks brought in the winning run for the Rockies.
Full recap to follow.
