    _______Rockies 18-29 vs Mets 22-23_______

    _______Greg Reynolds 0-1 3.09era vs Oliver Perez 4-3 4.25era_______

    Rockies: Reynolds is off to a good start in his first two big league appearances, showing poise on the mound and promising stuff. He has shown the confidence to throw a hard breaking curve and a changeup in secondary counts, and is commanding a good sinking fastball. The 6'7", 21-year-old was born with a downhill plane, a handy characteristic for a pitcher, particularly in Coors Field.

    Mets: Perez earned his second straight victory, pitching into the eighth inning for the first time in nine starts this season, while beating the Yankees on Sunday. He allowed three hits and two walks, struck out four in 7 2/3 innings and won for the second time in five starts. He has a 2-3 record and 7.24 ERA in six career appearances and 32 1/3 innings at Coors Field. His career record against the Rockies is 5-5.

    The Rockies lost their fourth consecutive extra-inning contest Wednesday. ... The Rockies have struggled in the back of the bullpen, notching only 11 saves in 20 chances for a .550 percentage. ... Colorado has sacrifices in its last six games, two short of the club record. ... Todd Helton reached base safely in six consecutive plate appearances, including all five trips to the plate Tuesday (two walks, two singls, and an intentional walk) and his first-inning walk Wednesday.

    Pedro Martinez, who flew to the Dominican Republic to be with his father who suffered a seizure this week, will have a bullpen session on Sunday in Port St. Lucie, Fla. ... Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado hit back-to-back home runs in the second inning. It was the third time this season the Mets had accomplished the feat. ... Last season against the Rockies, the Mets went 2-4 and posted a 7.67 ERA. Wright went 8-for-22 (.364) with a homer and five RBIs last season, and Beltran batted .167 (4-for-24) with two RBIs in six games against them.
