The Mets put on an offensive show on Sunday. Unfortunately, so did their pitchers. The end result was an 11-10 setback. The Rockies took the rubber game of the series and they finish the season with a 4-2 mark against the Mets.
* After putting up a 5-run inning on Saturday, the Mets recorded a 6-run frame on Sunday, with the big blow in both being a 3-run homer by Francisco Alvarez, who was batting second in the series finale.
* Tylor Megill could not hold a 6-2 lead. And as bad as Megill was, Stephen Nogosek was even worse, as he allowed 5 ER in his lone inning of work and took the loss. Both Megill and Nogosek appear to be Syracuse-bound before too much longer.
* Two days after grouping three struggling hitters together and getting an 0-12, Buck Showalter did it again. But this time, Starling Marte, Tommy Pham and Mark Canha combined to go 5-9 with 5 BB, a double, two triples, 5 runs and 4 RBIs. You gotta love Coors Field baseball.
* The Mets did great when they elevated the ball. The problem was that 17 outs came when they hit grounders, including three in the eighth inning and two more in the ninth when they were attempting to come back from a four-run deficit.
