Rockies Defeat Mets 5-2

The Mets put forth another uninspiring performance in a 5-2 loss to the Rockies at Citi Field. Tylor Megill was shaky early, giving up a run in each of the first two innings. 

The Mets came back to tie the game, but Megill was unable to get out of the fifth and departed the game with the Mets down 3-2. Stephen Nogosek surrendered a two-run homer to Ezequiel Tovar in the sixth that sealed the deal for the Rockies.

Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor each had an RBI groundout, but the Mets have mustered only four runs in four games. With a major league-record $355 million payroll, New York (17-17) has lost 10 of 13 since winning eight of nine.

“We have gotten outside of what we do best, including myself,” Lindor said. “We’re going to go through stretches like this. We just have to keep on pushing, fight the fight, and stay within ourselves.”
