Final Score: Rockies 13, Mets 4—Matz gets smashed

The Sunday Mets reared their ugly head again in an ugly loss. After having two games go “exceedingly well” out of the break, Sunday’s game was anything but, as the Mets got beat up in a 13-4 loss to the Rockies. Steven Matz was terrible for the second start in a row, and the offense couldn’t compensate against Jeff Hoffman and the Rockies’ bullpen. This was the latest installment of the Mets’ struggling on Sundays, as they’ve now gone 5-10 on the first day of the week this season. Matz allowed four runs in the first and three more in the second without recording an out in the...

After surrendering one more walk, Chatwood was pulled due to an injury concern, making way for Chris Rusin. Rusin proved no more successful,...
