Rockies win seventh straight in NY

Rockies win seventh straight in NY

The Rockies defeated the Mets in New York City on Wednesday. The team won by the final of 7-2 and have now defeated the Mets 7 straight times at Citi Field. That should not sit well with Mets’ fans who would like to see more victories when the Mets are playing at home. This is especially true because the facility is such a new venue that replaced an old Shea Stadium that was falling down around the baseball team. Neither one of these baseball teams is playoff bound, while both have a lot to discuss in the offseason.

The Rockies got 8 hits all together Wednesday. One of these hits was a homerun by Rosario who belted his 20th long ball of the season. The Rockies fell behind early as they gave up a run in the bottom of the first. They tied things up in the 4th with a run before going off offensively down the stretch. Colorado scored 2 runs in each of the 7th and 9th innings to give the team some insurance runs on way to the win. The team is now 49-73 following the victory.

The Mets fall to 57-67 on the year and have just a 28-33 home record this season. The team is in shambles and needs some serious help this offseason on both sides of the ball. Wednesday they got off to a good start scoring first blood and holding the Rockies offense. They then brought in relievers that served up hit after hit resulting in the loss. Ramirez ended with the loss and is now 2-3.
