The Mets fell behind 5-0 early but rallied to score 10 runs in the next three innings to earn a 10-5 win and even the series at a game apiece Wednesday night in Denver.
- Just about everyone contributed on offense. Jay Bruce and Curtis Granderson both homered in the game. Bruce hit a solo shot to the opposite field to pull the Mets within three and Granderson’s three-run shot to right put the Mets up, 8-5. Amed Rosario was credited with a triple on a ball touched by a fan, a play that results in a double 999 times out of 1,000. May have been a mistake to give him the extra base here but he was rewarded for busting it out of the box. Asdrubal Cabrera contributed three hits.
- While the offense was terrific, the real story of the game was the bullpen, which combined for six shutout innings. Chasen Bradford was credited with the win with his two innings but perhaps the biggest surprise was Fernando Salas throwing a scoreless inning in Coors.
- Paul Sewald also contributed two scoreless frames. In his last 15 apperances, he has a 2.12 ERA and a 0.765 WHIP, with 5 BB and 20 Ks. A.J. Ramos closed the game out.
- The only bad note of the night was rookie Chris Flexen again getting hit hard. He pitched two scoreless innings but allowed five runs in the fifth. There were reports of a blister on his hand, which possibly contributed to his demise.
