The New York Mets (41-48) dropped the final game of the series against the Colorado Rockies (53-41) by a score of 13-4 this afternoon at Citi Field.
Steven Matz toed the rubber for the Mets this afternoon, but he didn’t last long as he was pounded to the tune of seven runs on nine hits in just 1+ innings pitched.
The Rockies plated four in the first inning and another three in the second topped off by a bomb off the bat of Nolan Arenado.
Three of the Mets four runs came via the long ball, as Lucas Duda launched his 15th homer of the year in the fourth to get the Mets on the scoreboard, followed by a long ball from Asdrubal Cabrera which cut the deficit to a then score of 9-3.
Jose Reyes got the Mets within five in the sixth with a sacrifice fly, but the Rockies blew the doors off in the following frames, highlighted by a Charlie Blackmon hit what was ruled an inside-the-park home run that really banked off the railing in the left field.
