Mets top Rockies behind strong Matz performance
Steven Matz led the way as the New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 5-3 in MLB action on Saturday.
Mets pitcher Matz recorded 10 strikeouts through six innings of work against the Rockies at Citi Field.
But Matz was not the only member of the Mets to shine, as Pete Alonso and Carlos Gomez each hit home runs.
Colorado's Jon Gray was no slouch though and totalled eight strikeouts of his own. The Rockies' failure to get extra-base hits just left them short-handed.
The Mets are now six games adrift of the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East and have won three of their last four contests.
