MLB: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

It was another Coors Field mess for the Mets. The pitching was again all over the place and Seth Lugo was lifted after three innings despite being handed an early lead. That lead quickly evaporated and it became another back-and-forth affair until the Rockies took the lead against Robert Gsellman and the offense sputtered in its tracks.

A.J. Ramos underwent successful shoulder surgery and had been dealing with the injury for some time.

Zack Wheeler is finally healthy and his velocity has returned.
