Rox toss 4th shutout, aim for first series sweep

Rox toss 4th shutout, aim for first series sweep”

Wheeler at least provided himself something to build off in his most recent start on Sunday, when he earned the win after allowing two runs over five innings as NY beat the San Diego Padres 14-2. Their pitching has been mediocre, posting a 4.41 team ERA, positioning them 20th overall. NY starter Steven Matz was fantastic in absorbing the loss with three hits given up through six innings pitched. "And if we do, we're not going to win anyway", Callaway said.

Over the last nine games, Rockies starting pitchers have posted a combined eight quality starts, limiting the opposition to an 1.82 ERA. It doesn't appear to be a problem as the offense has been hot, hot, hot.

Bettis escaped a peculiar jam in the sixth. The Mets absorbed their first series sweep of the season Thursday when the visiting Atlanta Braves capped the three-game set with an 11-0 rout.

The Mets offense was not producing once again tonight as they were limited to six hits throughout the game.

Dahl allowed the Rockies to breath in the ninth.

"I got a pitch inside and I hit", Wolters said.

You watch [Max] Scherzer and those guys who are really aggressive attacking hitters, I felt like he was doing that, a little something extra at the end of his release.

"It's just basically taking a step back, fixing my hat, my glove, resetting and getting back on the mound", Matz said. I've been working a lot in the cage, trying to minimize some movements. But he has already tried that in recent days, even giving Michael Conforto the day off Saturday and leaving him on the bench when the Mets needed a pinch hitter late.

"That was pretty cool", he said. "I hit it as good as I could".

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the bottom half, ending the Mets scoreless streak at 18 innings.

A mental error by Charlie Blackmon cost the Rockies a possible chance in the sixth. Frazier hit an RBI single and stole second before Conforto fanned. But when Ian Desmond lined out sharply to center fielder Brandon Nimmo, Blackmon tagged up but was thrown out easily on Nimmo's one-hop throw to third.

Rhys Hoskins went 1 for 3 with a home run (5), two RBIs and two walks in a 3-1 win over the Nationals. Overall, Freeland has not pitched well away from Coors Field. Still, it's another strong start for the right-hander, who now owns a nifty 2.43 ERA on the season. NY has been outscored 31-9, hasn't led for a single inning and been blanked three times during a six-game homestand that concludes Sunday.

The Mets opened the season 11-1 but haven't won back-to-back games since. So he made his first start since April 25 when the Cards rocked him for a career-high-tying seven runs (three earned) in 3 ¹/₃ innings. The Colorado catcher, who last homered August 17, 2016, started Friday's action with the second-longest drought behind Kansas City's Jon Jay (329 at-bats).

The Rockies' Tony Wolters connects on a solo home run in the sixth inning Friday night against the Mets at Citi Field in NY.
