Colon kept getting battered in the fourth, allowing three more runs as the Rockies took a 6-0 lead. Colorado added another run in the fifth to go up 7-0.
The Mets got on the board in the eighth, when Juan Lagares rifled an RBI double to right-center to cut the lead to 7-1.
In the ninth, Travis d’Arnaud smoked a three-run homer to cut the lead to 7-4 and close out the scoring.
- Bartolo Colon got the start for the Mets and struggled early and often. He allowed seven runs on 10 hits in 4.2 innings pitched. He walked one, struck out three, and hit a batter.
- In his first game back from the disabled list, Juan Lagares went 2 for 4 with two doubles and an RBI.
- Travis d’Arnaud hit a three-run homer in the ninth.
After their flight from Philadelphia was delayed, the Mets didn’t land in Colorado until close to 4:30 AM – and they played like it for the majority of the night.
