Wilk, a journeyman lefty, was summoned to the Mets on short notice May 7 after Matt Harvey was suspended for an unexcused absence from a game. Right hander Steven Matz toes the rubber for the New York Mets against the visiting Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Chatwood has lost 3 starts in a row, and Colorado is 1-4 in his last 5 starts. They have been outscored 51-16 in those games.

Mark Reynolds delivered the knockout blow to Steven Matz, singling in the second inning.

Overall, Matz is 2-2 over seven starts, allowing 42 hits and eight home runs over 39.1 innings of work.

He started 22 games and went 9-8 with a 3.40 ERA, surrendering 129 hits while striking out 129 hitters across 132.1 frames of action. "It's frustrating, but I've got to flush it".

The Mets followed up their four-run first inning by scoring three times in the second and once in the third off Rusin. After the onslaught, Terry Collins asked pitching coach Dan Warthen to review the video.

This is Matz's third year with the Mets, but he has yet to pitch a full season.

LeMahieu went 4-for-5 to raise his season batting average to.316 and scored three runs. If the team continues to flounder it may be something worth revisiting if you can get a haul, but luckily it doesn't seem like that's going to happen.

Matz agreed with the manager's assessment.

"I'm not going to run after a ball I know is over the fence", Granderson said. Despite their recent slide, the Rockies hold a 5 1/2-game lead for the second NL wild card. Before the game, Collins said his goal leaving the All-Star break was to win 51 of 76 games, giving the Mets 90 victories for the season.

"I don't think it's real serious with Ces [Cespedes], but certainly if he's out any period of time we'll just have to do the best we can", Collins added.

By the time the Mets got on the board in the bottom of the fourth inning, courtesy of a solo-shot off the bat of Lucas Duda, the Rockies had built up a 9-1 lead.

Duda's homer was the 123rd of his career with the Mets, moving him ahead of Kevin McReynolds for eighth all-time in franchise history. Chatwood started Saturday but got just one out while battling an injury he suffered while warming up in the bullpen. Blackmon became the first player with two inside-the-park homers in one season since Colorado's Brandon Barnes in 2014. Then came a two-run single by Ian Desmond, who was fresh off the disabled list, and a two-run double by Trevor Story.

"I feel like I just wasn't really sharp today", Matz said. The ball caromed back onto the field and Blackmon kept running.

While you can't necessarily blame Curtis Granderson for his initial reaction-he clearly thought it was a home run-that he slowly jogged after the ball while Blackmon was sprinting around the bases and make a lackadaisical throw is inexcusable.
