The New York Mets have struggled to generate offense over the last couple of weeks, and that was the case again Saturday afternoon as they fell 5-2 to the Colorado Rockies at Citi Field.
Both of New York’s runs came in the first three innings. Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor had RBI groundouts. The Mets went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and left seven on base.
Tylor Megill surrendered three runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings. The right-hander also issued three walks and struck out four. Stephen Nogosek allowed the other two runs in relief of Megill.
The Mets will try to bounce back and win the series on Sunday at 1:40 p.m. Joey Lucchesi will take the ball for New York.
