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.
The pitching has been bad in this series but the offense hasn’t been helping themselves either.
Before the game the Mets sent Hansel Robles to Triple-A and recalled Chris Flexen.
A MRI revealed a hip strain for Jay Bruce.
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.
Terry Collins’s viral moment never should have happened due to an agreement with the World Umpires Association, which leads to the question, are there other videos out there?
