Desmond homers twice as Rockies sweep Mets

Desmond homers twice as Rockies sweep Mets

The Mets just might be desperate enough to bank on the power of proximity Friday night when they open a three-game series against the Rockies at Citi Field.

On this episode of the BSN Rockies Podcast, Drew Creasman goes inside the details of a Colorado Rockies pitching staff that is on one of the best runs in franchise history, including Sunday's start from Kyle Freeland that makes an argument for the most impressive outing of the year. The second-year left-hander has looked good in two straight starts, and he is carrying a 4.24 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP in 34 innings of work. The career.304 hitter has driven in five runs in his last six games, and he is on his way to another outstanding season. The Rockies are only averaging 4.14 runs per game, ranking them 21st in the Majors.

Desmond homered off Noah Syndergaard's 98 miles per hour fastball in the second. He now has 54 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings, and the ERA lowers to 3.05.

A two-out rally from the Rockies pushed them to score another run, started off by Chris Iannetta being hit by a pitch. Nolan Arenado is 1 for 3 against Syndergaard, while Carlos Gonzalez is 1 for 6 with two RBI's, and Charlie Blackmon is 1 for 5. NY had just six hits in the final two games and didn't record a hit against Julio Teheran on Thursday until Asdrubal Cabrera's two-out double in the seventh inning. On Friday, he went 2-for-5 with a double and a RBI and on Sunday, he went 2-for-4 with two solo homers.

The Mets now rank ninth in the league in walks with 121 despite that, but could certainly use a boost in that category to help facilitate the offense and allow them to act more aggressively on the basepaths.

0-4 in Freeland's last 4 starts against a team with a winning record.

The team has simply not been doing that much over their last five games with only ten walks in that span.

The New York Mets have lost three in a row and seven of their last 10 games and relief might not be on its way. He turned on starter Noah Syndergaar's 97.3 miles per hour fastball and drove it into the left-field seats, slicing New York's lead to 2-1. Maybe some of the Rockies' success will rub off on the New York Mets' struggling starting pitchers.

"We're struggling a little bit right now, but we can go on a run tomorrow just like we did to start the season", Syndergaard said.

The Rockies have been very inconsistent at the plate and Syndergaard continues to shine on the mound.

With the Rockies 3-2 win against the Mets, they wrap up their nine game roadtrip with a 6-3 record.
