The Mets have won six of their last eight when scoring more than three runs. Curtis Granderson leads New York with 117 hits and 55 RBI while Wilmer Flores and Daniel Murphy have combined for 97 RBI.

The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight. The Rockies have lost five of their last six when scoring more than three runs. DJ LeMahieu leads Colorado with 136 hits and 47 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado have combined for 140 RBI. The Colorado Rockies have lost five of their last seven home games. David Hale takes the hill, and he’s 3-4 with a 6.17 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. Hale is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 9-3 in their last 12 Sunday games and 9-1 in their last 10 games as a road favorite. The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 0-6 in Hales last 6 starts. The Mets are 13-3 in the last 16 meetings.
The Rockies have been fade material for quite some time now. That doesn't change now. I like the Mets to complete the sweep and continue to pull away in the NL East.
