Bruce, Lugo power Mets to 9-3 win over reeling Rockies

Bruce, Lugo power Mets to 9-3 win over reeling Rockies

The Rockies still have a 5 1/2-game edge on the Chicago Cubs in the wild-card chase, but they have dropped 15 of their last 20 and find themselves 11 1/2 games out of the NL West race after leading the division for 67 days earlier in the season.

Now they're in crisis mode, their postseason aspirations beginning to fade with each loss and every new dilemma. Chatwood will be re-examined Sunday morning.

"It's something I may need to get back to, working the curveball and changeup more and trusting my stuff versus going to their scouting report and relying on that more", Matz said.

The right-hander explained that he first felt something in his calf when he was warming up just before the game, but tried to work through it.

If the Mets can post a winning record in those seven games, there's a chance for them to go on an extended run with the following seven games against the scuffling Athletics and the Padres. He got Yoenis Cespedes to fly out to center, but then it all fell apart.

At that point, Black and assistant trainer Scott Gehret went to the mound to check out Chatwood. He threw 91 pitches, 60 for strikes.

He called for a thorough investigation into the recent killing of a Parisian woman believed to be linked to anti-Jewish sentiment. Macron condemned an attack last week that killed two Israeli police officers at a Jerusalem shrine revered by Jews and Muslims.

"I thought our at-bats today were really sound", Black said. "Visually, it looked that way to me". Antonio Senzatela now has a 9-3 record and a 4.63 ERA, But Kyle Freeland leads the team with a 3.77 ERA.

Travis d'Arnaud had an RBI single later in the first and T.J. Rivera (RBI single) and Lucas Duda (two-run double) each had run-scoring hits in the second. Hoffman is 3-1 with a 4.43 ERA in his last seven starts, though the ERA is skewed by a rough outing June 21 in which he gave up nine runs in 3 2/3 innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Matz entered his final start prior to the All-Star break riding 17-inning scoreless streak before getting pummeled for a season-high five runs on seven hits - including two homers - over a season-low 4 1/3 innings at St. Louis last Sunday. Gerardo Parra, making his second start at first base this season, did not do a good job of handling LeMahieu's throw.

The Mets came out of the All-Star break trailing the Rockies by 10 1/2 games for the second wild-card spot in the National League, but NY has been the far superior team this weekend - outscoring Colorado 23-5 through two games.

Well, LeMahieu began a gorgeous afternoon in the first with a one-out single to right field, the play hit that should probably be renamed after him.

Rookie starter Kyle Freeland, who was supposed to be taken out of the rotation for the short-term to limit his innings, followed up Rusin and pitched well, blanking the Mets for three innings, giving up no hits and one walk while striking out four.
