Welcome to the big leagues, Jenrry Mejia.
Jeff Francoeur’s hitting streak is still alive, this time due to a solo home run in the first inning. He was even intentionally walked.
David Wright also went yard, a two-run shot in the third inning.
The Mets scratched back with runs in the 8th and 9th innings to force extra innings.
Raul Valdes, Fernando Nieve, Pedro Feliciano and Ryota Igarashi turned in scoreless innings in relief.
Three stolen bases: Jose Reyes, Jason Bay, Gary Matthews Jr.
The Bad & Ugly
Mejia, in his first pressure situation, surrendered a leadoff home run in the bottom of the 10th inning to end the game.
Jon Niese, the starter, surrendered 9 hits and 5 earned runs in five innings of work. He also hit two batsmen.
Mike Jacobs is a mess at first base. That is all.
Aaron Cook, the Rockies starter, hit two doubles and scored once.
The Rockies committed three errors (should have been four).
Francoeur: 1-3, HR, 2 BB (Two!)
The Mets and Rockies finish out the series tomorrow afternoon, a 3:10 p.m. start time.
