Taijuan Walker’s gem powers Mets’ shutout win over Rockies to take series

DENVER — Taijuan Walker had been fabulous for six innings Sunday, but could the Mets get an additional three outs from him to help a taxed bullpen?  With a boost from his defense, Walker got those outs. Adam Ottavino, Joely Rodriguez and Edwin Diaz handled the rest, in a 2-0 victory over the Rockies at Coors Field.  For a second time in three starts, Walker fired a seven-inning shutout. In this one he allowed five hits with two walks and six strikeouts, allowing the Mets (28-15) to leave town with a series victory. In 13 series this season, the Mets are 11-1-1.  Buck...

Wood crumbles in final game of Padres sweep

Last year, Alex Wood was the Giants’ safety net. Whenever there was even the smallest hint of a potential skydive, he’d parachute their fall. He’d trampoline them back on track with a strong start. The Giants went 14-1 in games Wood started immediately after a loss in...

Underrated trade option that the St. Louis Cardinals should explore

The St. Louis Cardinals are likely to be in the market for a starting pitcher, and Chad Kuhl could be an underrated trade option that they explore. Perhaps the best value signing of the offseason was the Colorado Rockies’ one-year, $3 million contract with right-hander Chad Kuhl. And with the Rockies likely to sell once again at the trade deadline, the St. Louis Cardinals could be in position to pounce.

Mets vs. Rockies prediction: Taijuan Walker will stymie Rockies

The roller-coaster ride continues for the Mets’ Taijuan Walker (1-0, 3.52). And we are going to catch him on the upswing. Walker was filleted in Philly, giving up six runs. He followed that up with a shutout over seven strong against the Nationals. He then was removed after five innings after the Cardinals scored three runs. Time to shine again. But only if the sun shines in Colorado. Mets-Rockies was snowed out Friday. They played two Saturday. The Balboas will throw Austin Gomber on Sunday. Austin Powers has been powerless, allowing eight runs over his last 11 innings. Play 10 units on the Mets.

Final Score: Rockies 11, Mets 3 - Serven Deadly Sins

The Mets could not sweep both ends of the doubleheader against the Rockies, losing the nightcap 11-3. Trevor Williams started for the Mets, going four innings and leaving in a 4-3 deficit. However, Adonis Medina and Chasen Shrieve combined for a sixth inning that was as ugly as the Mets have seen all season, and the Rockies never looked back.

Final score: Mets 2, Rockies 0—Mile High series W

As has very often been the case thus far this year, the Mets won a series, this time taking two of three games from the Rockies as they won 2-0 in Colorado this afternoon. Taijuan Walker was excellent in the start, as were the Mets’ defenders, with Luis Guillorme in particular making some top notch plays in support of Walker. In total, Walker threw seven scoreless innings, struck out six, walked two, and gave up just five hits. The Mets’ bullpen—a trio of Adam Ottavino, Joely Rodríguez, and Edwin Díaz—backed him up with two scoreless innings of their own. And Díaz looked dominant, which has been the case in the vast majority of his appearances this year.

5 questions with Colorado Rockies reliever Justin Lawrence
