Desmond Helps Rockies Win 5th In Row, Beat Mets 3-2

Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies

Charlie Blackmon had no problem against the Mets' pitching last season, collecting a hit in 10 of 26 at bats with two homers and four RBI's, and he went 2 for 4 with one home run in Friday's win. He pitched seven shutout innings, allowing six hits and only walking one.

Wheeler at least provided himself something to build off in his most recent start on Sunday, when he earned the win after allowing two runs over five innings as NY beat the San Diego Padres 14-2. The Mets are 4-9 in Wheeler's last 13 home starts, are 2-7 in his last nine outings versus the National West West, and are 2-7 in his last nine outings when facing an opponent with a winning record. Robles was called up from Triple-A on Saturday when former Mets ace Matt Harvey was designated for assignment.

"We kind of got on the same page on what we were going do because there were a few sequences in there that we kind of didn't agree upon in the first inning where I was shaking him", Freeland said. The under has been a very common trend for the Rockies as they have yet to hit with any consistency, and Syndergaard continues to shut down the opposition, plus the under is 11-2-2 in Syndergaard's last 15 starts against a team with a winning record.The Mets are scuffling at the plate right now as well, and the under is 4-1 in Freeland's last 5 starts overall. He clarified the situation after the game, saying he felt some discomfort in his right quad while trying to beat out a double play on Saturday night. Cespedes said after the game that he had discomfort in his quadriceps, a red flag given his injury history. "I just wanted to take a little more precaution".

The Rockies did their damage on six hits and a trio of walks with Nolan Arenado connecting on his 8th long ball while David Dahl singled in Chris Iannetta.

Klopp: Chelsea showdown is like a CL semi-final
And despite that poor start, Madrid is now faced with two games to decide if their season is a glorious success or abject failure. Predicted lineups: Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Hazard; Giroud.

The Mets took a 2-0 in the first on an RBI single from Asdrubal Cabrera and Todd Frazier's sacrifice fly. A day after clearing deGrom, who sustained a hyperextended elbow on Wednesday, to make his next start on Monday, the Mets placed him on the 10-day disabled list. The move is retroactive to May 3.

Rockies starters last had eight consecutive quality starts in June 2009.

The Mets just might be desperate enough to bank on the power of proximity Friday night when they open a three-game series against the Rockies at Citi Field. The second-year left-hander has looked good in two straight starts, and he is carrying a 4.24 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP in 34 innings of work.
