The Mets send their ace to the hill in trying to capture a three-game series from the Rockies at Citi Field.
Colorado Rockies at New York Mets
Colorado picked up a 6-2 victory in the second game of this series over the Mets at Citi Field. The club will be looking to pick up its first road series win over today’s opponent in more than eight years. The Rockies are 25-17 in games against left-handed starters this season (+500), after posing a 27-26 mark in 2009. Offensively, the team has 162 RBIs versus southpaws, which is the most in the National League. The lineup is being led by outfielder Carlos Gonzalez having the second-most extra-base hits since the All-Star break in the league (16) and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki batting .375 with one home run and 12 RBIs in 14 games since returning from the disabled list. Colorado is a dismal 4-11 as a road underdog of +125 to +150 (-560) and the total in those games stands at 6-9 O/U in that span.
