The Mets are 7-3 in their last 10 vs. National League West, 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Rockies are 3-8 in their last 11 during game 2 of a series, 6-1 in their last 7 home games and 0-4 in Chatwoods last 4 starts. The Mets are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings and the over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The Rockies continue to win games at home and the offense is tearing the cover off the ball right now. Flexen was not good in his MLB debut in San Diego, and it's hard expecting him to be any better in park where the ball jumps off the bat. Add in the way the Mets are playing overall and this is a game the Rockies should have little trouble winning.
