Rockies’ rally comes up short vs. Mets

DENVER — The Rockies’ fortunes shifted with the changing winds at Coors Field on Saturday, and after punishing the Mets with 18 runs on 19 hits in the series opener, they could only muster five runs on nine hits, falling to the Mets, 7-5.

The Rockies took the early lead when Marco Scutaro led off the first with a single to left, stole second, and advanced to third on a throwing error from catcher Josh Thole. Scutaro later scored on a one-out grounder from Troy Tulowitzki. MORE>>>
