The Mets (77-73, 15.5 GB in NL East, 5.0 GB for second Wild Card) continue a three-game series from Coors Field in Denver against the Colorado Rockies (66-85) Tuesday at 8:40 p.m. on SNY.
On the second day of the season's final road trip, the Mets are 5-5 in their past 10 games after they fell 9-4 in Monday's series-opening loss to the Rockies. One bright spot was Brandon Nimmo, whose leadoff home run put the Mets on the board in the top of the first inning and added to his solid return -- since being activated Sept. 1, he is slashing .241/.465/.655. Along with Nimmo, Jeff McNeil gave the Mets a boost via the long ball, sending a two-run shot in the top of the third inning and putting the Mets ahead 3-1. McNeil's multihit game was his 50th of the season, becoming the 13th player in Mets history to do so. With 99 hits on the road, Amed Rosario is on the cusp of 100 hits away from home, which would make him the eighth player in Mets history to reach the century mark as a visitor.
