The Colorado Rockies and New York Mets take the field in the final game of their series in a Sunday MLB tilt.

Reds slugger Adam Duvall bashed 64 home runs over the last two seasons entering the year, but he has struggled to see the ball in 2018. The Rockies are only averaging 4.14 runs per game, ranking them 21st in the Majors.

Noah Syndergaard will get the nod for the eighth time of the season, aiming for his first win in almost one month. Improving to 4-1 on the season, Bettis held the Mets to just six hits while hurling seven scoreless innings. The menacing right-hander has not received a lot of run support however is pitching well, sporting a 3.10 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP in 40.2 innings of work.

A two-out rally from the Rockies pushed them to score another run, started off by Chris Iannetta being hit by a pitch.

Rhys Hoskins went 1 for 3 with a home run (5), two RBIs and two walks in a 3-1 win over the Nationals. We've been hitting guys in different spots, pushing [Michael] Conforto back a couple days ago, Nimmo in there the last couple games. NY had just six hits in the final two games and didn't record a hit against Julio Teheran on Thursday until Asdrubal Cabrera's two-out double in the seventh inning. Posey, Crawford and McCutchen collected three hits apiece, while Hanson went 2 for 5 with a home run, double and four RBIs. Conlon, 24, had a 6.75 earned run average with Class AAA Las Vegas, but that is a hard pitching environment and the Mets had limited options. They possess a 4.26 team ERA, positioning them 16th overall.

7-3 in their last 10 games against a left-handed starter.

The team has simply not been doing that much over their last five games with only ten walks in that span. Maybe some of the Rockies' success will rub off on the New York Mets' struggling starting pitchers. Nothing had changed with deGrom's health, the team assured, but the Mets are taking the better-safe-than-sorry route, so his next start was pushed to next Sunday.

"We kind of got on the same page on what we were going do because there were a few sequences in there that we kind of didn't agree upon in the first inning where I was shaking him", Freeland said.

The Rockies have been very inconsistent at the plate and Syndergaard continues to shine on the mound. The victory completed the Rockies' three-game sweep, extended their season-high winning streak to five games and completed an impressive 6-3 road trip.
