Game 1 Recap: Rockies Sink Mets, 2-1


It was a good old fashioned pitcher’s duel last night (well, sort of), with the Rockies coming on top. Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin didn’t allow many hits (only two), but walked an astounding six batters. However, the Mets offense could not cash-in on the free passes, as they only scored one run against the young righty. Chris Capuano also pitched a great game, hurling 6.6 innings, allowing five hits, two earned-runs, three walks, while striking out four batters. With the exception of Ike Davis, the Mets hitters seemed awfully fooled by Chacin. The loss drops them down to 15-20 on the season.

METS GAME HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Chris Capuano pitched 6.6 innings, allowing five hits, two earned-runs, three walks, while striking out four batters.
  • Carlos Beltran went 0-2, but drew two walks, and scored a run.
  • Ike Davis was the only Met to record a hit off Chacin, and did so twice.
  • Jason Bay drew a walk, and also knocked in the only RBI of the game.
  • Jason Pridie took two walks from the wild, but unhittable Chacin.
  • Taylor Buchholtz threw a scoreless inning, lowering his seasonal ERA to 1.45.
