In Colorado on Sunday afternoon it was 55 degrees. Mets defeated the last place Rockies 2-1. Pitching was the key to the Mets win. Marcus Stroman registered 8 solid innings allowing just 1 run on 3 hits in route to his 3rd consecutive win to remain undefeated in 2021 at 3-0. Diaz earned his second consecutive save of the season.
McNeil grounded out to second and Alonso scored the game's first run. In the top of the 4th, two fielding errors put two man at the corners and then J.D. Davis delivered a RBI single to make it 2-0 Mets.
It's rare to have a 2-1 win in Colorado, but the Mets manage to do it, keeping the Rockies in the basement.
Not a good game for the Mets $341 million SS. With Nimmo on 2nd and no outs in the 8th, Lindor fouled out to third. He went 0 for 4 and has just 2 RBIs to go with an embarrassing .189 batting average. Yes, it's still early in the season, but he's been disappointing.
Granted Lindor's RBI single in Sunday's doubleheader helped deGrom earn that well-deserved win after he fanned 14 batters in a game for a second time this year.
Meanwhile, Brandon Nimmo is batting a blistering .447 and the Mets are in 1st place in the NL East with a 7-4 record.
