Rockies Erupt for 18 Runs Against Mets Pitching

The Colorado Rockies (10-9) were trailing by four runs when they crossed home plate eleven times in the 5th inning last night, en route to an 18-9 win over the visiting New York Mets (11-9). The Rockies had five batters with multi-hit games. The two teams will go at it again tonight at 6:10 at Coors Field (TV: Root Sports).

Friday night’s series opener featured a solo shot, a pair of three-run homers and a grand slam for the Rockies, but arguably the biggest at-bat came from Young, who pinch-hit to lead off the fifth, scored two runs in the inning and turned the tide for Colorado.

Official: Friday’s Box Score.

“Every time I hit the ball, I run hard,” Young said. “Have you ever seen me not once run hard? It’s the right way to play the game.”

The Rockies followed Young’s hustle play with three walks, seven hits (including two three-run homers from Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler), and a hit batsman, along with four errors from the Mets, to score 11 runs, one shy of the Rockies’ record for runs in an inning. Gonzalez set a club record with five RBIs in the inning, as the Rockies sent 15 men to the plate.
