5/26/23 Game Preview: New York Mets At Colorado Rockies

Brett Baty, Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, New York Mets

After two sluggish nights in Chicago, the New York Mets (26-25) finally had their bats break out. The Mets dropped a 10-spot on the Cubs to avoid a sweep at Wrigley Field and snap a two-game losing skid. Next up for the Mets is a trip to Denver to take on the struggling Colorado Rockies (22-29). First pitch for the opener of this three-game set is scheduled for 8:40 p.m. at Coors Field.

Right-hander Max Scherzer (3-2, 4.01 ERA) is set to take the mound for the Mets tonight. Scherzer pitched well in his last start, tossing six shutout innings against the Cleveland Guardians on Sunday, but was stuck with a no-decision after the Mets’ bullpen blew a lead for him in the eighth inning. The Mets did rally to win that game 5-4. The Rockies will counter with young righty Connor Seabold (1-1, 5.97 ERA). Seabold was hit hard by the Texas Rangers on Sunday, giving up five runs in 3.2 innings to suffer his first loss of the season.
