The New York Mets’ (17-18) struggles continued as they fell under .500 and dropped another series with a 13-6 loss to the Colorado Rockies (14-21) at Citi Field on Sunday afternoon.
New York held a 4-3 lead going into the fifth inning, and then it got ugly. Colorado scored seven consecutive runs against Jimmy Yacabonis and Tommy Hunter to take a 10-4 lead and never looked back.
Jeff McNeil and Brett Baty each drove in a pair of runs, while Daniel Vogelbach crushed his second home run of the season. Luis Guillorme also chipped in an RBI.
Joey Lucchesi gave up three runs on four hits over four innings. The right-hander also walked three and struck out four.
The Mets will get the day off Monday before they begin a three-game series with the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday at Great American Ball Park.
