Taijuan Walker tosses seven shutout innings as Mets blank Rockies

The New York Mets blanked the Colorado Rockies, 2-0, on Sunday afternoon at Coors Field.

Taijuan Walker made the start for New York and was outstanding. The right-hander tossed seven shutout innings and struck out six while allowing five hits.

Adam Ottavino, Joely Rodríguez, and Edwin Díaz combined for two scoreless innings in relief. Díaz picked up his 10th save of the season.

Both of the Mets’ runs came in the sixth inning. Francisco Lindor grounded one through the left side for an RBI single and one batter later, Pete Alonso delivered a run-scoring groundout.

Lindor and Luis Guillorme had two-hit games.

The Mets will begin a three-game series with the San Francisco Giants on Monday night at Oracle Park. The first pitch is slated for 9:45 p.m.
