The Mets‘ offense couldn’t back up David Peterson, as the Rockies picked up a 3-2 win in Citi Field on Monday night.
Here’s a few takeaways from the game:
1. Peterson was on the mound for the Mets and had a rough start. After a mostly quiet first inning, Peterson gave up two solo home runs in the second inning to open things for the Rockies and give them a quick 2-0 lead.
2. Later on in the fourth, after putting a runner on base with a walk, Peterson gave up a triple to deep center which brought in another run.
Johneshwy Fargas crashed hard into the centerfield wall trying to make the catch on the play, and looked pretty banged up afterwards. He finished the inning out, but was replaced by Cameron Maybin, while Khalil Lee took Maybin’s spot out in right.
The Mets announced during the game that it’s a left AC joint sprain for Fargas.
3. Peterson’s day finished after 6.0 innings and 89 pitches, with the lefty finishing with five hits and three earned runs allowed, while striking out three and walking three.
4. James McCann, who made his first ever appearance at first base with all the Mets’ injuries, hit a homer out to deep center to cut the deficit to 3-1.
5. Brandon Drury crushed a solo home run to left in the leadoff spot in the ninth inning, to make things very interesting in the final frame with the Mets now down by just one.
But after a Patrick Mazeika single, Jonathan Villar struck out, Francisco Lindor popped out to left, and McCann struck out to end the game.
The Rockies held on to secure the 3-2 win and snap the Mets’ five-game home win streak.
The Mets and Rockies run it back Tuesday night at 7:10 p.m. at Citi Field, with Jacob deGrom set to make his return to the mound.
