The Mets scored three runs in the seventh inning for a come-from-behind 4-2 win over the Rockies in Citi Field Monday night.
- A single and two walks loaded the bases with two outs for Curtis Granderson in the seventh. He did a great job of working the count and was hit by a pitch to tie the game. Daniel Murphy followed with an opposite field single that drove in two.
- The comeback made a winner of Jon Niese, who for the second straight game was the beneficiary of a late offensive rally. Outside of the fourth inning, when he gave up three hits, including a two-run homer to Carlos Gonzalez, Niese pitched well. He retired his final 11 batters and his line was 7 IP, 2 ER, 0 BB and 5 Ks.
- Jeurys Familia retired the side in order in the 9th for his 31st Save of the season. It was his sixth straight appearance without allowing a run since the rain/umpire/TC debacle against the Padres.
- The Mets moved to 39-18 at Citi Field and 11-4 in their last 15 games.
