Recap: Game 122 - Rockies at Mets - Rockies get passed Mets 3-1

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)
Colorado (47-73) «000010011360
N.Y. Mets (57-65)100000000161

HR: COL - T. Colvin (14)   NYM - None

Jonathan Herrera scored the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth inning on a passed ball as the Colorado Rockies downed the New York Mets, 3-1, in the opener of a four-game set.

Herrera reached on a bunt single and moved to second on Josh Edgin's (1-1) throwing error to first. He scampered to third on Chris Nelson's sacrifice bunt and scored when Kelly Shoppach was unable to hang onto an Edgin slider.

The Mets loaded the bases with two outs in the home half. Jordany Valdespin bounced one down the first-base line, but Tyler Colvin made a backhanded stab and flipped to the covering Matt Belisle, who just got to the bag in time to nab the sliding Valdespin.

Colorado added an insurance run in the ninth on Ramon Hernandez's RBI single to left field and Rafael Betancourt tossed a scoreless home half to notch his 24th save of the season.

Colvin smacked a solo homer, while Rex Brothers (7-2) struck out two over 1 1/3 scoreless frames to pick up the win.

Alex White started the game for Colorado and allowed a run on three hits and two walks in four innings.

R.A. Dickey fanned six and surrendered a run on three hits and two walks in seven innings for the Mets, who have lost five of their last seven games. With a no decision, Dickey still has 15 wins on the year, one behind Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto and Washington's Gio Gonzalez for the National League lead.

Daniel Murphy lined a two-out RBI single in the opening frame before Colvin crushed a homer to right field in the fifth to knot the contest at 1-1.

Game Notes

The Mets were 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position and left 10 men on base, while Colorado finished 1-for-5 with RISP and stranded five ... Colvin's homer was his 14th of the year.

Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey comes back off a loss for just the fourth time this season tonight when the New York Mets host the Colorado Rockies in the first of four games at Citi Field.

The 37-year-old Tennessee native has won 15 of 19 decisions in 2012, but was beaten, 6-1, by the Cincinnati Reds in his most recent outing on Aug. 15 after allowing 10 hits and five runs in six innings.

He's unbeaten in three previous starts coming off losses, combining to allow 12 hits and three runs in 23 innings.

A seven-time winner in eight decisions across 12 home appearances in 2012, Dickey has held opponents to a .203 batting average in New York while striking out 81 batters in 81 1/3 innings.

He dropped his lone career decision against Colorado.

The Rockies start righty Alex White, who turns 24 at the end of the month and faces the Mets for the first time in his 25th big-league start.

He debuted with Colorado by making three starts in 2010 and made seven more last season before becoming a more regular fixture in the rotation across 14 starts in 2012.

Late Recap: Game 122 - Mets at Padres - Cory Luebke holds down Mets

Final Score: San Diego 6, New York 1

Cameron Maybin hit a solo homer and Orlando Hudson drove in two runs to back six solid innings from Cory Luebke, as the San Diego Padres handled the New York Mets, 6-1, in the second test of a three-game series.

Nick Hundley, Alberto Gonzalez and Aaron Cunningham each knocked in a run for the Padres, who had lost three of four coming into Tuesday's game.

"Some guys are being given an opportunity to play and get more at-bats. They're taking advantage of that," Padres manager Bud Black said.

Luebke (5-6) gave up one run on three hits to pick up the win. He struck out five and walked three. Chad Qualls, Luke Gregerson and Erik Hamren each tossed a scoreless inning of relief.

Ruben Tejada had two hits and an RBI for the Mets, who were unable to build off Monday's 5-4, 10-inning victory.

Jonathon Niese (11-10) allowed three runs on 10 hits over six innings to take the loss.

"They hit them where we weren't," Niese explained.

Preview : Game 122 - Mets at Padres - Niese tries to keep things rolling

New York Mets (59-62) at San Diego Padres (54-69), 10:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Jonathon Niese (11-9, 4.03) San Diego - Cory Luebke (4-6, 3.09)

Mets starter Jonathon Niese pitched well the last time he faced the Padres, but wasn't able to come away with the win. Tonight he gets another crack at it when New York resumes a three-game series in San Diego.

Niese allowed three runs -- two earned -- and seven hits over 7 2/3 innings in last Thursday's 3-2 loss at home to the Padres. He also struck out seven batters and is 1-1 with a 1.08 earned run average in two career starts against San Diego. Niese was 2-0 in three starts before the recent loss and fell to 11-9 in 25 games (24 starts) to go along with a 4.03 ERA.

The left-hander is still a solid 4-2 in his previous six decisions and owns a 6-3 mark in 12 road games (11 starts) this season.

New York was able to end a five-game losing streak with Monday's 5-4 victory in 10 innings at Petco Park. Jason Pridie scored on a fielder's choice by Scott Hairston in the top of the 10th inning and closer Jason Isringhausen evaded some trouble in the bottom half to lock down his seventh save and 300th for his career. Isringhausen became the 23rd pitcher to reach that mark.

"We had a champagne party here a while ago and stuff like that," Isringhausen said. "It is special. It's the reason I came back."
