The Mets lost to the Rockies for the fifth straight time this year but this time it was in Colorado for a change. Chris Capuano pitched a really nice game going 6.1 innings and allowing only 2 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks. He got chased in the seventh inning when Chris Iannetta hit a solo homer down the line in left field to give the Rockies the lead.

The Mets had very little offense with only 5 singles and 6 walks in the game. They had plenty of chances but left 10 runners on base. Willie Harris had a check swing single in the ninth to get something going. But he got thrown out stealing with one out that killed any chance of starting a rally.

The Mets and Rockies do it again tomorrow night at 8:40pm.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
