Carlos Carasca bounces back in a solid game against the Rockies when the Mats win their first game in the doubleheader – Reading Eagle
DENVER – The snow did not stop the Mets to continue the victorious path.
The Mets beat the Rockies 5-1 in the first game with a doubleheader at Course Field on Saturday after 5.1 solid innings from Carlos Carrasco and an early explosion in the offense. The Mets corresponded to their top three-game streak by taking the first game in the doubles.
Carrasca, in his debut field at Coors Field, lowered his ERA season to 3.50 after his 87-step effort that limited the Rockies to a single run of seven strokes. The right-handed veteran bounced back from his previous exit when he allowed four earned runs on eight strokes through 4.1 innings without making a decision against the sailors. Carrasca controlled the movement on the base tracks in all but one half on Saturday, but his ability to limit damage kept the Mets in the game.
The Mets’ crime, after scoring 11 extra-innings against the Cardinals on Thursday, continued where it left off, followed by snow in Denver on Friday. As a result of Starling Marte’s emotional home run in the first inning, the Mets strikers struck 13 hits against three Colorado pitchers, including starting pitcher Herman Marquez, in the first double-header game on a striker-friendly football field.
Since the beginning of 2021, the Mets (27-14) have played 19 double headers. No other team has played more than 10 during this period. Over the past two years, they have earned at least a stake in all 19 of their twin accounts. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the club’s series of 19 consecutive double-heads without results is the longest in Metz’s history. Amazin is currently leading the major tournaments, having played five double-heads in just the first quarter of the 2022 season.
