    _______Rockies 19-30 vs Mets 23-24_______

    _______Aaron Cook 6-3 3.06 vs John Maine 5-3 3.29_______

    Rockies: Cook has lost two straight starts after winning a club-record six straight. He grasped for control during the first four innings of his last start, against the Giants, giving up four runs in the first four innings. But after a brief pointer from pitching coach Bob Apodaca to stay compact in his delivery, he pitched three strong innings to last through the seventh. He's trying to take that feeling into his next start.

    Mets: It now appears the standard M.O. for Maine's opponents is to foul off pitches by the dozens in an effort to tire the Mets starter. Maine has thrown 325 pitches in his three most recent starts, covering 18 1/3 innings. His loss to the Braves on Tuesday was his first after four consecutive victories. He needed 99 pitches to achieve 12 outs.

    When Rockies right fielder Matt Holliday tied Friday night's game with a ninth-inning home run and won it with an RBI single in the 13th, he became the second player in the past four seasons to send a game into extra innings with a home run and win it with a hit. The Indians' Ryan Garko was the last player to do it, on July 17, 2007, against the White Sox. ... Left-hander Micah Bowie, on the disabled list since April 22 with a strained inner left forearm, reported feeling fine after a 30-pitch -- all fastballs -- bullpen session on Saturday. The strain occurred in the area where a nerve in the forearm was moved during a Tommy John ligament transfer surgery. Bowie's next session, likely on Tuesday, will include secondary pitches. ... Shortstop Omar Quintanilla's ninth-inning error on Saturday ended his errorless streak at 72 games.

    Nick Evans' three doubles in his big league debut on Saturday marked the first time a player has had three extra-base hits in his first game as a Met since Kazuo Matsui hit two doubles and a homer on April 6, 2004. ... Luis Castillo's eighth-inning double extended his hitting streak to nine games. ... Jose Reyes singled and stole a base to lead off the game, giving him 24 consecutive games in which he reached base safely by hit or by walk.
