Rockies lose to Mets, 14-9 -- again

Rockies lose to Mets in another high scoring affair.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Like last night, the Rockies lost to the Mets 14-to-9. Also like last night, a lot of the damage came against the starting pitcher.

Chris Rusin got hit hard tonight. He lasted just two-plus innings and gave up 12 runs on 11 hits. In relief, Justin Miller allowed three more runs. The rest of the bullpen kept the Mets scoreless, but it hardly mattered. As opposed to last night, when Yoenis Cespedes dismantled the Rockies with three dingers and a mess of bases, the damage was evenly distributed tonight. Every spot in the batting order for the Mets had at least two hits, and no single player drove in more than two runs.

The Rockies' bats weren't exactly silent tonight, scoring nine runs. Charlie Blackmon and Jose Reyes each homered, Kyle Parker hit his first career triple. He also doubled, as did Carlos Gonzalez and Dustin Garneau.

In all, the Rockies tagged starter Jonathan Niese for seven runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings and added a couple more later. Niese got the win.
