The New York Mets capped off a six-game road trip with another series loss, falling 11-10 to the Colorado Rockies on Sunday afternoon at Coors Field.
New York led 6-2 after 3 1/2 innings, but Colorado scored four runs in the bottom of the fourth to tie the contest before adding five more in the fifth to take an 11-7 lead. The Mets rallied in the ninth, plating three runs, but the Rockies held on for the win in another slugfest.
Francisco Alvarez remained scorching hot at the plate as he crushed a three-run home run, his fifth in the last eight games and eighth overall. Tommy Pham had a big day, going 3-for-4 with a two-run double and a two-run triple. Francisco Lindor smashed his ninth home run, while Brett Baty and Eduardo Escobar chipped in RBIs.
Tylor Megill’s struggles on the mound continued as the right-hander allowed six runs (four earned) on ten hits over four innings. Stephen Nogosek took over in relief and got lit up, giving up five runs in an inning.
The Mets will get the day off Monday before they begin a six-game homestand on Tuesday, starting with three against the Philadelphia Phillies. The first pitch is slated for 7:10 p.m.
