Frazier crashes the picnic

The Mets got on the board early with the help of an Amed Rosario single, Michael Conforto double, and then a Todd Frazier 3-run home run. Frazier secured the lead when he took pitcher Jeff Hoffman deep over the left field wall in the bottom half of the first inning.

He would also bring in Amed Rosario with a 2-out RBI double in the 5th, driving in his fourth run of the day.

The veteran 3rd baseman is now batting .265 with 5 doubles, 6 home runs and 20 RBI’s while going 2-4 in today’s contest.

The Mets would end up winning the game 6-1, taking the 3-game series against the Rockies.

Over his last 7 games, Frazier has 7 hits in his 21 at-bats, 5 runs scored, 3 walks, with 2 home runs and 7 RBI’s. His slash line over those 7 games sit at .333/.440/.667.

In his last 15 games, the veteran 3rd baseman is 19 for 54 with 13 runs scored, 7 walks, with 4 home runs and 12 RBI’s. He’s maintained a .352/.435/.630 slash line during that 15 game stretch.

Sunday Afternoon Pitching Matchup: Rockies vs Mets

The Colorado Rockies will send pitcher Jeff Hoffman to the mound on Sunday afternoon to square off against the Mets. Hoffman, 1-2, has a 7.29 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 22 strikeouts over the course of 21 innings pitched.

Noah Syndergaard will take the hill for the Mets in hopes to win the series finale, as well as the series against the Rockies. Syndergaard is coming off of a start in which Callaway removed him with 2-outs in the 7th inning and later on publicly told the media that he’d regretted the swap. The Mets would eventually go on to lose that game against the Giants in the latter innings.

Syndergaard is 3-4 with an ERA of 4.83, 1.27 WHIP, with 81 strikeouts in 82 innings pitched.
