New York Mets at Colorado Rockies: series preview
The New York Mets and the Rockies will be kicking off a three-game series as a part of the first half of a six-game home stand.
Entering the start of a three-game series with the New York Mets, the Rockies play has been nothing to write home about. They are 5-5 in their last ten games including being swept by the St. Louis Cardinals. However, they had a good series in Washington D.C. as they took two of three from the Nationals, who have the second best record in the National League.
Since the All-Star break, the Rockies are 8-7 and the offense, in that span, has done very well. In those 15 games, they have scored 103 runs (which is nearly seven runs per game), 160 hits (nearly 11 per game), a .303 batting average, a .363 on-base percentage, and a .520 slugging percentage.
On the pitching front, however, they have struggled mightily as they have allowed 95 runs, 89 earned (which is nearly six runs per game), 56 walks (nearly four per game), and a 6.18 ERA.
They will be looking to improve that on the first half of this home stand against the Mets who have only hit .267 since the break and they are seventh in the National League in runs and in the bottom half of the National League in nearly every other category.
