Final Score: Mets 9, Rockies 5
A lot of Mets fans were cringing at the news of Ike Davis’ trip to the DL and the fact that David Wright would be sitting out this game to rest his back. It seemed like it would be another one in the loss column, but sometimes surprises come out of games with a less than stellar line up card.
Carlos Beltran went three for five in last night’s rain delayed game at Coors Field. All three of his hits were two-run blasts, two from the left side of the plate and one from the right. Oddly enough, Willie Harris was on first base for all three of those homers, getting on base with a walk the first two times and singling in the top of the ninth before Beltran’s final long ball of the evening.
