After a mini two-game losing streak the New York Mets find their winning ways again by knocking off the Colorado Rockies 4-2 at Citi Field.
For New York Mets closer Jeurys Famlia, it must feel good to get back into the one, two, three column. His very quick ninth-inning save (31) against the Colorado Rockies best hitters provided the his club with the 4-2 victory Monday night.

Prior to Familia though, New York’s offense needed to overcome a 2-1 deficit. It came in the seventh-inning with Rockies starter Jon Gray already receiving the hook.
With the bases-loaded and ex-Yankee Boone Logan on the hill, Curtis Granderson took a pitch off the elbow on a full count to force in the tying-run. Then, Daniel Murphy found a hole on the left-side to give the Mets a two-run lead. Their three-run seventh provided all the offense Tyler Clippard and Familia needed.

Catcher Travis d’Arnaud clubbed his fifth home run of the campaign in the second-inning, his first such shot since returning from the DL. In fact that was the only earned run and hit Rockies stud prospect Sonny Gray allowed in six-innings and just 75 pitches.
Jon Niese picked up his seventh win of the season as he went seven, giving up two runs and six hits.
Both clubs will get right back at it tomorrow night. The Mets currently hold a two-game lead over the Washington Nationals who play in Los Angeles against the Dodgers tonight.
