New York- After another impressive and well needed start from R.A. Dickey, the Mets were unable to capitalize on it. In that, dropping to eight games below .500. Mets lose to the Colorado Rockies 3-1.
In a game against the 30th ranked pitching staff in Major League Baseball and having the Rockies' starting pitcher Alex White exit the game after four innings, the Mets were only able to muster up one run. The run coming after David Wright scored on an RBI-single from Daniel Murphy. With R.A. cruising and the offense driving up the pitch count, it seemed as if the team would just squeak another run or two in for added insurance. As like much of this year would have it, that would not be the case.
The Mets would have an opportunity in the eight inning of the game, when they had the bases loaded and two men out. It would be a close call at first base to put an end to that. After sliding down to first, the first base umpire would rule Jordany Valdespin out. They would also have a chance to tie or win the game with Mike Baxter on in the ninth, but in a less controversial play, Baxter would just fly out to center. Ending the game.
The Rockies would gain their three runs after a Tyler Colvin home run in the fifth, a passed ball by Kelly Shoppach, and an RBI from Ramon Hernandez, scoring Dexter Fowler.
