A rough first inning dooms the Mets as they drop the series finale to Colorado.

MLB: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets dropped their third game in a row to the Rockies by the score of 6-4. After a promising top of the first inning where Todd Frazier hit a solo home run, things quickly went south for Steven Matz and the Mets in the bottom of the inning. Nolan Arenado quickly pounced on Matz’s mistakes and drove a three-run home run to left to put the Rockies ahead 3-1. The next inning was more of the same as Arenado came up again with two men on and proceeded to drive both of them in on a double to right. Those were the last runs Matz surrendered in his 5.2 innings pitched.

The Mets’ offense went back to their usual selves, only scoring three runs against the Rockies in Coors Field after scoring eight runs the previous two games. After Fraziers home run, the next run came in the third on a Brandon Nimmo single which drove in Amed Rosario to bring the Mets within three. Wilmer Flores tacked on one more in the eight with his sac fly, but the Rockies quickly responded in the bottom half to undo that progress. A Jose Reyes grounder accounted for the last Met run of the game in the ninth.

In the back end of the game, the bullpen did little to help the Mets’ cause as Paul Sewald, Jerry Blevins, and Chris Flexen combined to pitch the eighth, giving up three walks, a hit, and one run before getting out of the inning.

Full recap to follow.
