The Mets offense has been shutout in three of their last five games, including last night, and the other performance they scored in was a mere two-run showing against the Atlanta Braves.

Ian Desmond was mobbed like a rock star in the Rockies' dugout Sunday afternoon. The victory completed the Rockies' three-game sweep, extended their season-high winning streak to five games and completed an impressive 6-3 road trip.

Since then, the 32-year-old veteran has kept a close relationship with Brown and has been involved in different ways to create awareness of the condition, partnering with the Children's Tumor Foundation. NY had just six hits in the final two games and didn't record a hit against Julio Teheran on Thursday until Asdrubal Cabrera's two-out double in the seventh inning.

"I don't think it's a surprise, I don't think I'm concerned, it's just part of the game", Mets manager Mickey Callaway said.

Desmond homered off Noah Syndergaard in the second. Freeland was solid in his latest effort, conceding three runs in six innings against the Cubs, and he was charged with the loss to drop his record to 1-4. Tests showed that deGrom had sustained no damage to his throwing arm on Wednesday, so the Mets penciled him in for Monday, a decision they reaffirmed on Saturday after he threw a bullpen session.

The suit alleges that Rose would also berate the three young staffers, calling them "idiots", and questioning their abilities. Rose referred to Wei as a "China doll" and caressed her arms when she handed him papers, according to the lawsuit .

"We sat down and spoke about the welfare of the team continue, maybe not reacting from what's been going on these days", he explained. "When they jumped out 2-0, that home run off Syndergaard, now that gave us some life like, 'Hey, we took him deep'".

On this episode of the BSN Rockies Podcast, Drew Creasman goes inside the details of a Colorado Rockies pitching staff that is on one of the best runs in franchise history, including Sunday's start from Kyle Freeland that makes an argument for the most impressive outing of the year. But Freeland retired 21 of his final 23 batters beginning with Todd Frazier's sacrifice fly. The Rockies have thrown a team record-tying eight in a row. A mid-inning chat with his batterymate Tony Wolters eased the rest of his day.

Adam Ottavino walked Wilmer Flores and gave up a hit to Adrian Gonzalez in the ninth before striking out pinch-hitter Tomas Nido for his first save.

That seemed to cool off Saturday night, the second game against the New York Mets, as the Rockies fell back to earth and put up only six hits and scoring two runs to win 2-0.

Under is 7-2 in Colorado last 9 overall and under is 7-2 in Colorado last 9 on grass and under is 10-4 in Colorado last 14 Sunday games.
