"It's always good when you win a series", Cabrera said. "I was leaving balls right over the middle of the plate and they were hitting it". Those are essentially the "Who is Jon Snow's mother?" of these Colorado Rockies. Chatwood started Saturday but got just one out while battling an injury he suffered while warming up in the bullpen.
Lugo hit his first professional homer with one out in the third. But with Charlie Blackmon striking out before that single and Nolan Arenado popping up after it, it would be left to several players who have been the subject of ire for the fans and the press to get the job done. They got three of them.
The home run made it 11-4, and Neil Ramirez surrendered a long two-run homer to Gerardo Parra in the eighth to complete the Rockies' day.
Steven Matz was booed in the second inning and removed after fooling nobody. LeMahieu fire the opening salvo, this time hitting a double into the right-center field gap. The New York attack consisted of eight hits and four free passes with Seth Lugo and Jose Reyes going solo while Jay Bruce homered, drove in three and scored twice followed by a two RBI effort from Lucas Duda. It was his 19th homer of the season, scoring Story, who had singled for his second hit in the game. Hoffman has been sensational away from Coors Field entering his first career start against the Mets, posting a 3-0 record and 1.67 ERA in four outings (2-1, 6.44 in six home appearances).

For the sixth time this season, the Mets dropped a Sunday series finale at their home ballpark, falling to the Rockies, 13-4. With a two-hit day, Blackmon retook the Major League Baseball lead in that category. OF David Dahl (ribs) was scheduled to play for Triple-A Albuquerque again after going 1 for 4 on Friday in his first game since his rehab assignment was moved from Class-A Lancaster.
Hoffman (6-1) didn't have a 1-2-3 inning but wriggled out of trouble in each of the first three frames, when NY put the leadoff runner on each time yet didn't score.
After giving up Bruce's three-run shot to straightaway center field and a four-pitch walk, the right-hander was checked on the mound by manager Bud Black and a trainer. While nothing to get overly excited about, it was still a start the Rockies desperately needed as they got a combined seven outs from their starters in the two games prior to this one. There is still a Narrow Sea between the Rockies and the Los Angeles Dodgers who sit on the Iron Throne.
It's just not the way you write it up. No one knows how this will end.
